SUMMIT, N.J. — STADA Corp., the U.S. division of the international pharmaceutical and consumer health company STADA, is partnering with No Kid Hungry to help children across America get access to healthy meals. STADA focuses its community involvement and charitable support in a localized and targeted approach, and recent U.S. market entrant STADA Corp. said it is proud to announce No Kid Hungry as its charity of record for the United States.
“In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, 1 in 4 children in the United States could be facing hunger,” said Dan Brown, General Manager, STADA Corp USA. “This is why the brands Bio360 Probiotics and NUVIA, both new supplements in the healthy lifestyle market, have partnered with No Kid Hungry to help provide up to 1.5 million meals for kids in need.”
Traditionally, many kids have relied on the meals they get at school each day. But even as school staff work hard to provide healthy food while school buildings are closed, too many children are missing the meals they need.
“We are so grateful to be partnering with these STADA Corp. brands at this critical time for children facing hunger in America,” said Diana Hovey, senior vice president at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the hunger crisis that already existed in this country. Fortunately, our new partners Bio360 Probiotics and NUVIA have come forward to help kids get the meals they need.”
No Kid Hungry’s plan is to make sure children are fed through a combination of emergency grants, strategic assistance, advocacy and awareness. No Kid Hungry is helping kids, families and communities get the resources they need both during the pandemic crisis and in the recovery period to follow.
“Our purpose is caring for people’s health as a trusted partner, and this new partnership with No Kid Hungry will help connect children in need across the country with the healthy meals they need to thrive,” added Brown. “With the launch of the new Bio360 Probiotics and NUVIA supplements, we couldn’t think of a better cause to align with than addressing child hunger.”
