Hunger is very real....it isn't something that is new but it is something we can do something about. Bolivia is currently having many issues with hunger.
Did you know that:
*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 of the country’s children does 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 other health issues for families in the community.
Knowing of the hardships faced by these families, the Truvia® brand has committed to working with the World Food Program USA to help provide Bolivian kids and families with a sweeter future.
Thanks to the Truvia® brand’s “Sharing a Sweet Future” charitable initiative, over 34,705 Bolivian school children have already received more nutritionally-balanced school meals, and Bolivian locals have received 68 fuel efficient stoves, allowing another 3,574 students to eat cooked meals in a safer environment.
