Plexus, a direct-selling health and wellness company, has announced a new international partner for its Nourish One Initiative to combat hunger across the globe.

Starting this month, Plexus will make a monetary donation for every serving sold internationally of its new Plexus Lean product line to Mary’s Meals, a global child hunger charity that feeds 1.3 million children a day, according to a release.

In addition, Plexus announced a $25,000 donation to Mary’s Meals at the company’s Jan. 12 Super Saturday event, which took place in cities across the United States and Canada.

“Plexus is thrilled to launch this new partnership with Mary’s Meals to help combat child hunger in the world’s poorest communities,” stated Tarl Robinson, Plexus CEO and founder.

“Our initial donation is just the beginning, and with thousands of Plexus ambassadors in Canada supporting this noble cause through the sale of Plexus Lean Whey and Vegetarian meal replacement shakes, we believe we can make a real difference.”

Mary’s Meals works with community volunteers to set up school feeding programs across 17 of the world’s most impoverished countries, including Malawi, Liberia, Kenya, Syria, Haiti, Thailand and India.

Children are encouraged to attend school to learn and get a meal, instead of working or begging for food.

“We are excited to partner with Plexus and its Canadian ambassadors to bring new awareness to the 61 million hungry children in poverty-stricken communities around the world,” stated Patty Burns, director of corporate partnerships for Mary’s Meals USA.
