Now more than ever, the importance of good nutrition, health and safety is critical. We are committed to supporting the communities where we live, work and the ones made vulnerable during this time of uncertainty.

The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted life for millions of people around the world, including mass closures of schools, layoffs and reduced resources for those that need it most. This disruption to schools, work and communities means even more families are susceptible to hunger and food insecurity.

As a global company nutrition, we have a unique opportunity and responsibility to help those in need of good nutrition and critical resources.

Our leadership and experience in the nutrition industry, with 40 years of experience developing and delivering science-backed nutrition products to more than 90 countries worldwide, means that our company remains committed to ensuring that our nutrition products are available to the millions who use them every day around the world.

Our manufacturing facilities are fully operational and working to build even more inventory to be able to adapt to the uncertainty we face dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

How We Are Supporting At-Risk Populations

Through our Nutrition for Zero Hunger initiative, we are committed to ending world hunger, supporting global nonprofit organizations with critical resources and expertise to ensure people in need have access to good nutrition.

During times of crisis, the need to ensure access to food is critical. That is why Herbalife Nutrition and the Herbalife Nutrition Foundation have taken steps working alongside leading organizations to ensure that these communities have the resources to provide access to healthy, nutritious food.

These are some of the steps we have taken towards supporting vulnerable populations:

Globally, Herbalife Nutrition is supporting large-scale COVID-19 relief efforts:

“Because of the support of partners like Herbalife Nutrition, WFP is in a strong position to tackle this virus, but there’s still much more to be done,” said Barron Segar, President and CEO of World Food Program USA. “The outbreak has been devastating to families worldwide and requires an unprecedented response from business partners to humanitarian and government agencies.”

In the U.S., Herbalife Nutrition is supporting vulnerable populations affected by COVID-19:

“Feed the Children is taking action to ensure our neighbors aren’t forgotten. Eighty percent of our standard domestic work involves supplying community partners (like food pantries and soup kitchens) with the bulk of the items they need to do their daily work. This will continue. Our trucks will keep moving across the U.S. to bring support to those families who need it. We expect our work to only increase during these unprecedented times, said Travis Arnold, President and CEO Feed the Children. “Through our vast network of community and corporate partners like Herbalife Nutrition, we are continuing to work each day to ensure that no child is hungry.”

But the residents, business owners and employees have rallied together to provide essential services to our most vulnerable populations,” said Acquanetta Warren, Mayor, City of Fontana. “Partnerships with local businesses such as Herbalife Nutrition, adds tremendous value to our Senior programming and remind us that this community is Fontana Together.”
