Nutrition & Fitness

Together we can ensure access to food, water and a healthy lifestyle.

If we are what we eat, we’re a world of extremes, desperate for a healthy middle. On one end is hunger. According to UNICEF, in 2017 approximately 200 million children under the age of five suffered from malnutrition. Where malnutrition has been abolished, we’ve created an epidemic of excess. Obesity is now a primary cause of some of the world’s biggest killers, like heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Billions of people the world over are overweight, and 650 million are obese. Together we can create a world where all people have access to the foods they need to thrive, prevent disease, and stay healthy regardless of where they live. We also can build communities of support to help people control their weight and live healthy lifestyles.
