Two Degrees delivers

You may remember my post about Two Degrees, a company that donates a packet of food supplement for each nutrition bar they sell. Well, they recently went to Africa and made their first delivery -- 10,800 nutrition packs to malnourished children in Malawi. Here is a picture of co-founder Will Hauser and a local community health worker preparing to disburse the Two Degrees/Valid Nutrition RUTF packs. You can read more about it on Will's blog post. You can also follow this activities of this innovative company on their Facebook page.

Remember, the food supplement is produced locally, so jobs are created, also.

The company is seeking companies, colleges, schools, and other institutions who might want to distribute and sell the bars in company cafeterias and snack bars and other corporate settings. I will vouch for the taste and nutrition (as they helped me and some friends get through a bike trip in the Atlas Mountains), the integrity of the founders, and the good cause. (I have no financial interest in the company.)
