Here at Food Family & Finds, food is something I talk about quite a bit. It’s a huge part of our lives, always necessary but sometimes in excess. In our country and around the world, excess is not a word that many families can use when it comes to food. This is especially true for the children and families in Bolivia. That’s why I’m helping support Truvía® brand this month. Over a three-year period, nearly $1 million in contributions from Truvía® will be used to help develop sustainable communities in Bolivia.
The Truvia brand launched a new campaign to support its $1,000,000 “Sharing a Sweet Future” charitable initiative in partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme to help reduce childhood hunger in Bolivia. To learn more about the efforts, visit www.SharingaSweetFuture.com
Every day, over 40% of Bolivian families struggle to support their children’s most basic food needs:
- Two-thirds of the Bolivian population is below the poverty line.
- The majority Bolivian children do not receive the minimum daily caloric intake and are suffering from nutritional deficiencies.
- The widespread use of primitive cook stoves resulting in harmful smoke exposure has led to a number of health issues for Bolivian families.
