There are two faces of malnutrition in the world, the malnourished overfed and the malnourished underfed. Nourish The Nations seeks to provide a sustainable solution for both.
Nourish The Nations has linked itself to an online provider of advanced whole food nutritional products to help support individual health goals. It is an optional part of the program for the church and the participants. However, we strongly encourage this option for two very significant reasons.
Number one: our research and experience in complementary health have led us to a unique nutrition company. In our opinion, they have the best science to achieve superior outcomes for those who are already struggling with significant health or obesity issues.
Number two: This company offers its sustainable whole food nutritional solution as a social business. What that means is that they link the needs of the malnourished overfed people of the world (and there are 1.4 billion), to the needs of the malnourished underfed people of the world (there are 1.2 billion).
How do they do this? For every product purchased online, a similar whole food nutritional support product is donated to malnourished children through Manna Relief ministry, a relief organization that has donated over 85 million daily servings of Whole Food nutritional support to children in 89 countries around the world.
This buy-one-give-one model, combined with advanced whole food based solutions, provides a platform that is in total congruence with Nourish The Nations. Approximately 6 million of the 1.2 billion malnourished underfed people in the world are the most vulnerable of all. They are the children who die each year from the acute and chronic diseases that result from malnourishment. Nourish The Nations was able to align with this powerful movement to bring a Wholistic Biblical Stewardship ministry into God’s House and at the same time practice the “pure religion” of taking care of the world’s most needy people. We call this the Joseph Mandate, the preservation of life during the time of famine.
