Making the World a Healthier and Better Place is part of our mission at Naturelite Nutrition.
We're a family business that believes in order for us to make our communities better and more welcoming places, we need to support causes close to our own.
That's why we invite our customers and business partners to support the following causes near and dear to our hearts here at Naturelite.
Feeding Those in Need: Three Square
As a Nevada-based company, headquartered in Las Vegas, we support Three Square. Three Square is a Feeding America affiliate, serving four counties in Southern Nevada: Clark, Nye, Lincoln and Esmeralda. Three Square and Feeding America estimate the number of food-insecure persons in the Southern Nevada service area to be more than 296,000. Food insecurity occurs when people aren’t able to secure enough food for a healthy diet and active lifestyle, at some point during the year.
Three Square sources food, raises funds, and relies on volunteers to help supply their program partners with the food and services they need to provide wholesome food directly to hungry people in hundreds of neighborhood locations in all four counties. Three Square has a service network of community partners including nonprofits, schools, shelters, meal programs, SNAP outreach sites, etc. Three Square does not provide food directly to clients from their facility.
Making Sure Our Children Grow & Thrive: Three Square
Three Square is also focused on our youngest and most vulnerable food-insecure - our children.
Did you know childhood hunger can cause lasting physical and mental challenges on into adulthood? There’s no excuse for allowing boys and girls in our community to go hungry. It’s up to all of us to care for these growing kids, and give them every opportunity to lead healthier, more productive lives.
Proper nutrition in childhood is critical. Lack of regular, nourishing meals can lead to chronic illness and increased hospitalizations, developmental problems, and even significant health issues in adulthood. Hunger can cause difficulty focusing in school, and result in behavioral and social issues.
Childhood hunger is a serious problem in Southern Nevada.
- More than 117,000 children regularly go hungry.
- More than 62% of children in Clark County schools — that's more than 205,000 students — are enrolled in free or reduced-price meal programs.
Thanks to caring friends like you, and through Three Square, boys and girls can get the delicious, nutritious meals they need to thrive. Support ensures growing children can get access to meals at school, after-school feeding programs, and food assistance during the summer.
