Many of us grew up with the mantra, “Clean your plate.” Our parents would say, “There are children who don’t have enough to eat.”
Unfortunately, that part is still true. The United Nations estimates that globally nearly 870 million people suffer from chronic undernourishment.
As for that mantra about cleaning your plate? It has led to a very different challenge in today’s world of supersized portions and sugar- and fat-dense foods. Now we can inadvertently consume a day’s worth of calories in just one sitting.
So, MealEnders is introducing a new maxim:
Each year, MealEnders will donate the greater of 1% of our profits, or 5 cents per bag sold on MealEnders.com, to organizations that provide food security* to undernourished children and adults. For 2018, the donation will go to CARE and Feeding America.
Every overindulgent meal you cut down to size and every snack you skip by using a MealEnder will help feed others!
So the next time you feel the urge to clean your plate, remember that taking a MealEnder will help you pass the plate to others who don’t have that option.
*Food security is a condition that “exists when all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life.”
