Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) November 03, 2012
Today, MonaVie, a global leader in nutrition products, and MORE Project, MonaVie’s charitable arm, shipped 75,000 of its RVL Nutritional Bars to Feeding America, the largest domestic hunger relief organization in the nation, to distribute to victims and volunteers affected by Hurricane Sandy.
The donation was sent to Feeding America’s Long Island Cares location for distribution to local agencies throughout the East Coast region. The nutrition-packed snack bars were chosen by MonaVie’s executive team because they are rich in antioxidants, contain 24 vitamins and minerals, and are easy to pack in an emergency situation.
“Like the rest of America, we were devastated to watch on the news as Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on our family, friends and colleagues on the East Coast,” said Dallin A. Larsen, Founder, Chairman and CEO of MonaVie. “We at MonaVie alone have literally tens of thousands of people across Delaware, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Washington DC who were impacted by this disaster. Thankfully, Feeding America responded in a timely manner to our donation offer, and we were able to send the snack bars to their Long Island Cares location. We hope they provide that extra energy and nutrition to keep people going through this particularly stressful time.”
