Sharing a Sweet Future || Food Security in Bolivia with Truvia

This post is sponsored by Truvia via One2One Network.  Opinions, as always are my own.

The kids went back-to-school this week, and I carefully packaged each compartment of two stainless steel lunch containers with proportioned amounts of healthy variety that I had been thinking about for quite some time.  I found myself worrying about my son’s super early lunch time until a partnership with Truvia came along.  It opened my eyes to chronic malnutrition and the astounding amounts of food insecure households in Bolivia, one of Latin America’s poorest countries.  I  couldn’t wait to work with a company anchored in social goodness, and determination to help feed Bolivian school children while establishing self-sufficiency within the community.

In Bolivia, an astounding 40 percent of the population are unable to secure adequate food for a healthy life and a whooping 65 percent of all rural households can’t meet the minimum recommended caloric intake.  That’s why Truvia recently announced it’s “Sharing a Sweet Future” initiative in collaboration with The World Food Program USA, which will help to feed 49,705 Bolivian schoolchildren in the first two years of a three-year partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme.

Nutrition, safety, environmental sustainability and education have already been improved through Truvia’s provision of 97 metric tons of vitamin-fortified vegetable oil and 125 fuel-efficient stoves in rural schools – with training provided to over 750 parents and school employees.  These stoves replaced dangerous traditional stoves and require substantially less fuel while reducing harmful smoke.

Help raise awareness for this amazing initiative by visiting www.shareasweetfuture.com, and share videos of Bolivian families with the hashtag #SweetFuture on social media.  Also help Truvia’s continual corporate responsibility program’s future organizational partnerships by viewing and voting for charitable partners.  I would love to see the momentum continue with a partnership with Feed the Children one of the largest charitable organizations in the U.S. rooted in providing hope and resources for those without life’s essentials.
