EWING, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–According to the USDA’s Food Security Status of U.S. Households in 2020, over 38 million people lived in food-insecure households last year. At a time when health and wellness are top of mind, vitafusion™ , America’s #1 Gummy Vitamin Brand, continues their partnership with global non-profit WhyHunger– a leader in the movement to end hunger and advance the human right to nutritious food in the U.S. and around the world. Building off a successful 2020 partnership with WhyHunger, vitafusion will continue its support by matching donations up to $100,000 in 2021* to help reach WhyHunger’s Hungerthon goal of raising $1M, to nourish families, build healthy communities and strike at the root causes of hunger.
During WhyHunger’s 36th annual Hungerthon fundraiser and awareness drive, a multifaceted campaign that runs through the holiday season, donations raised will help communities to safely grow, store and distribute nutritious food to people in immediate need, organize and advocate for long-term solutions to hunger locally, and build power nationally to end hunger. Its Live Hungerthon Day will take place on November 23, 2021, and will feature interviews, auctions, exclusive Hungerthon merchandise and more.
Last year, WhyHunger’s critical resources including its Hotline and Find Food Database connected over 1 million people to free and nutritious food in their communities.
Emmy-Award winning actress, author, comedian, and vitafusion™ Brand Ambassador, Tiffany Haddish is teaming up with America’s #1 gummy vitamin brand, as part of their partnership with WhyHunger to help raise $1M and make a positive impact by addressing the underlying issues at the root of hunger to build healthy, nourished communities across the U.S.
“As a brand ambassador for vitafusion Gummy Vitamins, I am excited to help those in need with access to nutritious food heading into the holiday season and work with a brand that shares my commitment to supplying delicious nutrition for all,” says Tiffany Haddish. “What people eat can have a huge impact on their overall health. I love working with vitafusion and WhyHunger to educate people about their health and remind them that not everyone has equal access to healthy food, which together we can help change.”
Since launching over three decades ago, WhyHunger’s Hungerthon has raised millions of dollars in the fight to end hunger and invest in community-driven solutions to build social justice for all.
