The USANA Foundation provides immediate and long-term global food relief for those in severe need. They lead a network of community-driven partnerships to nourish, equip, and eliminate hunger and malnutrition throughout the world. The foundation works with dozens of local and international organizations — experts in delivering on-the-ground aid to those who need it.
Food is essential for survival but not a need that's attainable by many individuals, especially those suffering unbearable circumstances. According to theworldcounts.com, 4,412,215+ people have already died from starvation this year alone. Therefore, it’s USANA’s mission to provide sustainable solutions so that not only do those numbers decrease worldwide, but survivors' basic needs are met, so they may focus on thriving.
USANA provides meals for survivors in various aftercare facilities throughout the globe. With USANA’s donations, survivors in Mexico were able to be fed nutritional and nourishing food while receiving healing services. The funding is also being used to teach survivors to cook, so they may have the skills needed to start their own business and provide for their families.
In Malaysia, the foundation's donations have provided improved nutrition to those at the aftercare home. The donations are also used to host culinary classes and maintain a vegetable garden in the area. The women in the aftercare home come from various areas in South East Asia, which provides cultural difficulties when it comes to recovery and integration. The increase in food budget has allowed for the women to expand their food menu, even more nutritious to eat.
One of the quotes that the USANA foundation goes by is, “Teach a man to fish.” Because although they aim to provide immediate hunger relief when needed, they also work towards long-term solutions by teaching others how to provide for themselves and their families. O.U.R. is beyond grateful for their continued partnership, and the relief that they have provided to survivors across the globe.
