LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Soylent—maker of award-winning, science-backed nutrition shakes with a mission to make complete, sustainable nutrition accessible, appealing and affordable to all—has officially donated six million meals to those in need through its #SoylentForGood program.
Millions of Americans struggle to access adequate and nourishing meals due to limited financial resources and systemic barriers. According to Feeding America, for 42 million (1 in 8) people in the United States, breakfast is not certain—neither is lunch or dinner. This reality has significant implications for their health, well-being, and overall quality of life. Furthermore, without nearby access to affordable, high-quality food options, individuals and families in poverty are forced to rely on unhealthy, nutrient-poor foods that are often high in calories, sodium, and unhealthy fats.
According to Jamie Sullivan, Soylent’s Senior Director of Marketing and Impact, “Access to nutrition is a human right and, as a food company, we have a responsibility to use our expertise to help provide nutritious meals to communities in need. September is also Hunger Action Month, and we want to use our platform to bring awareness to the pressing issue of food insecurity. This milestone of six million meals donated is just the beginning of our brand’s ongoing commitment to making a positive impact through #SoylentForGood.”
#SoylentForGood was launched in 2016 through a partnership with World Food Programme USA. Since its inception, Soylent’s philanthropic program has supported more than 160 different hunger relief organizations, including many food banks in the Feeding America Network, homeless shelters, senior centers, and hospitals. Soylent is proud to have donated an average of over one million nutritious, science-backed meals per year for the last four years.
“We are very grateful for dedicated partners like Soylent who help us meet our mission of addressing food insecurity and providing nutritious meals for our community,” said Lynda Rosenbush, Director of Procurement and Business Diversity at the Greater Chicago Food Depository. “Their most recent donation—one of many to our food bank—provided the equivalent of nearly 45,000 meals to our neighbors in need and further demonstrates their commitment to ending hunger. Congratulations to Soylent for reaching this impressive milestone—six million meals donated!”
