LOS ANGELES, CA – March 16, 2011 – I AM enlightened nutrition®, an innovator in the field of next generation liquid nutritional supplements, is proud to announce the company’s partnership with Nourish America, a charitable organization dedicated to providing free daily nutrition to Americans struggling with poverty and malnutrition. Through this new partnership, I AM hopes to help further Nourish America’s mission – ending preventable malnutrition in America.
“We are proud to support an organization that brings real relief to those in need,” says I AM Co-founder Eric Schnell. “As a certified B Corporation, I AM is dedicated to making a social impact. We could think of no better way for a nutritional supplement company to give back than to help provide nutrition to the people who need it most.”
Nourish America has been providing nutritional foods and supplements to disadvantaged Americans for over a decade, making a meaningful impact on countless lives. Last year alone, Nourish America provided almost $3.5 million worth of nutritional products to almost 200,000 Americans in need including over 30,000 children, 1,200 pregnant mothers, 32,000 seniors, and 100,000 disaster victims.
With 94% of each donation going directly to the programs, Nourish America is able to deliver $15 in high-quality nutritional products for each $1 donated, yielding huge results from each donation. Nourish America has been awarded the Impact Award from the California Association of Non-profits (CAN), honored by the Texas House of Representatives for its Hurricane Ike Relief efforts, and approved to receive special funding from the U.S. Congress through Department of Education.
“With 1 in 5 children living in poverty without adequate nutrition in the United States, we are committed to helping to provide proper nutrition to end the cycle of poverty and improve daily lives.” said I AM co-founder Andy Jacobson.
