What if your favorite fruit and nut bar was not just a midday snack, but was also a meal for a hungry child across the globe? Well now, it can be! Let us introduce you to This Bar Saves Lives, a brand of nutritional bars that are not only great tasting and good for you, but also help feed hungry children.
When Hollywood actors Todd Grinnell, Ryan Devlin and Ravi Patel visited Liberia, they were heartbroken by the poverty they encountered. Every year, severe acute malnutrition claims the lives of 2.6 million children. That’s one child every 12 seconds, so when the actors returned home, they decided to take action by jumping on the ‘buy one, give one’ band wagon and creating a healthy, nutritious fruit and nut bar.
With the purchase of this new snack, a child in need on the other side of the world receives a food bar, jam packed with nutrients required to nurse them back to health. This Bar Saves Lives eventually attracted A-list celebrities, such as Kristen Bell who is now on the board of advisors for the company. By the end of the year, the co-founders hope to sell one million bars, giving helpless families across the world a chance at life!
