Herbalife promuove un programma di informazione nutrizionale nelle scuole americane

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Herbalife (NYSE: HLF), a leading global nutrition company, announced a long-term partnership with national non-profit organization, Common Threads, to sponsor nutrition programs in elementary and middle schools across the country. The program gives students in over 135 schools in Illinois, Washington, D.C., California and Florida access to nutrition and cooking skills curricula.

LOS ANGELESHerbalife (NYSE: HLF), società leader della nutrizione globale ha annunciato una partnership a lungo termine con l’organizzazione non-profit nazionale, Common Threads, per sponsorizzare programmi di nutrizione nelle scuole elementari e medie di tutto il paese. Il programma offre agli studenti in oltre 135 scuole in Illinois Washington, D.C. , California e Florida l’accesso ad informazioni sulla nutrizione e su un programma per affinare le loro abilità culinarie.

“Herbalife is excited to sponsor nutritional programs to help students in these cities improve their understanding of the importance of eating healthy,” said Angela ArboledaHerbalife vice president of government and community affairs. “It is critical to equip our nation’s young people with the building blocks for healthy living, especially those who do not have access to the resources and information at home.  Programs like Common Threads are important for helping children establish healthy eating habits. We look forward to building upon our company’s deep commitment to helping people live healthy, active lifestyles through this long-term partnership.”

Herbalife è lieta di sponsorizzare programmi nutrizionali per aiutare gli studenti in queste città affinché migliorino la loro comprensione sull’importanza del mangiare sano“, ha detto Angela Arboleda vice presidente della direzione affari di Herbalife. “E’ fondamentale informare i giovani della nostra nazione affinché capiscano l’importanza di costruirsi uno stile vita salutare, soprattutto quelli che non hanno accesso alle risorse e alle informazioni direttamente a casa.” Programmi come Common Threads sono importanti per aiutare i bambini a stabilire delle sane abitudini alimentari. Non vediamo l’ora che ci venga affidato l’incarico  nel quale metteremo un profondo impegno per aiutare le persone affinché vivano in buona salute e con stili di vita attivi, grazie a questa partnership a lungo termine.

The program is geared towards students who do not otherwise have access to well-balanced dietary options in their community or at home. The schools selected for the program are located in neighborhoods across the country that do not have access to fresh produce and other nutritious ingredients. One of the criteria for school selection is that 80% of the students in the school must qualify for free school lunches.

Il programma è orientato verso gli studenti che non hanno accesso in altro modo a scelte dietetiche equilibrate nella loro comunità o in casa. Le scuole selezionate per il programma si trovano nei quartieri di tutto il paese che non hanno accesso a prodotti freschi e ad altri alimenti nutrienti e di qualità. Uno dei criteri di selezione della scuola sarà che l’80% percento degli studenti dell’istituto siano riconosciuti come aventi diritto al pranzo gratuito nella mensa scolastica.

“Common Threads is thrilled to announce that Herbalife will become an official national program partner of our organization,” said Art Smith, president of Common Threads. “Herbalife’s generous support will help improve the lives of at-risk youth in communities across the country.”

“Common Threads è entusiasta di annunciare che Herbalife diventerà partner in questo programma nazionale della nostra organizzazione“, ha affermato Art Smith, presidente della Common Threads. “Il generoso sostegno di Herbalife contribuirà a migliorare la vita dei giovani a rischio nelle comunità in tutto il paese.”

As a result of the partnership with Herbalife, Common Threads will grow its existing programs and expand into five additional LA-area schools to serve over 600 students in the first year alone. Students participating in the program will receive lessons throughout the school year in good nutrition, healthy foods from across the world, planting and harvesting from a garden to make healthy meals, and meal planning and budgeting for healthy meals with family members.

Come risultato della partnership con Herbalife, Common Threads potrà aumentare i suoi programmi esistenti ed espandersi in altre cinque scuole dell’area di Los Angeles per servire oltre 600 studenti già nel primo anno. Gli studenti partecipanti al programma riceveranno lezioni durante tutto l’anno scolastico sulla  buona alimentazione, cibi sani provenienti da tutto il mondo, semina e raccolta da un piccolo orto per poi fare pasti sani, pianificazione del pasto e budget da improntare per avere pasti sani con i membri della famiglia.
