Six Star Pro Nutrition Partnering with Feeding America
Six Star Pro Nutrition®, “The Athlete’s Choice” and a leading maker of scientifically formulated premium supplements, has once again partnered with Feeding America®, the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the country, to help provide up to one million meals to people facing hunger through the Walmart Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign. Each $1 helps to provide at least ten meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. Starting on April 18, more than 4,600 Walmart® locations are offering specially-marked bottles of 100% Whey Protein Plus, in which the equivalent of one meal will be donated to Feeding America for each bottle sold. Six Star Pro Nutrition’s goal is to secure one million meals through the end of the campaign.
As a means of amplifying the effort by the Six Star Pro Nutrition brand, Team Six StarTM members will also help promote the cause on social media. This includes T.J. Watt, Pro Football’s Defensive Player of the Year, Tobin Heath, a three-time world champion soccer star, Weston McKennie, an international soccer superstar, U.S. National Team soccer standout Kristie Mewis, and Javain Wilson, a Bronx-based workout warrior. Six Star Pro Nutrition has also tapped on 20 Pro Football Draft prospects to further advocate for the campaign, shining a spotlight on local communities as this group celebrates a rise to stardom.
“Nutrition is a first step for many athletes and with all that is happening in our world right now, many struggle to figure out where their next meal is coming from,” said Jarrod Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer at Iovate Health Sciences International Inc., the maker of the Six Star Pro Nutrition® brand. “It is the ambition of the Six Star® brand to help provide one million meals to people in need and it is a cause championed by every employee and athlete in the Six Star® family, including some at the very top of their profession.”
Feeding America supports critical work that aims to reduce barriers and increase access to food assistance for people facing hunger. The Feeding America nationwide network of 200 food banks and 60,000 pantries and meal programs works hard every day to help people who face hunger, especially as food prices and supply chain disruptions impact household budgets.
