SupplySide Network 365 Donates $25,000 to Vitamin Angels to Support Efforts to Provide Life Saving Vitamins and Minerals to Children in Need

PHOENIX, Dec. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SupplySide Network 365 has announced a donation of $25,000 to the non-profit Vitamin Angels, an organization that delivers essential vitamins and minerals to millions of pregnant women and children in need around the world. The donation will help the organization deliver evidence-based nutrition interventions across the critical window of a child’s development.

Informa presented the donation to Vitamin Angels Founder and CEO/President Howard Schiffer on November 20 during a virtual event titled “Nutrition Works: Evidence of Benefit from the Lab to Global Impact” hosted on SupplySide Network 365, a new digital platform designed to help connect the community members that power our health and nutrition world. During the session Greg Horn, managing director at William Hood & Company and co-founder of Nutrition Capital Network, presented the compelling and tangible benefits of Vitamin Angels’ global programs, where nutrition interventions change lives every day.

Schiffer said: “Paraphrasing Dickens, 2020 has shown us the worst of times and (surprisingly) the best of times. Despite the incredible challenges and hardship this year has brought there have also been some silver linings – like our industry experiencing growth that we haven’t seen in a while. Hopefully it will be sustained with a culture centered more around health. In this growth we have the power and obligation to make significant change, not only with our customer base but by giving back to those that need our help with basic nutrition. Leadership takes many forms and stepping forward in these times of COVID, really plants a flag that says, ‘We truly believe in and are committed to making this world a healthy place. For every woman, every child, everywhere!’ Thank you to the SupplySide Network 365 for believing in the women and children we serve! Your continued support really makes an impact on so many lives.”

The donation included $5 for every member registered on SupplySide Network 365, an intelligent, industry hub for health and nutrition professionals to discover, connect, meet, learn and source. Leading up to SupplySide East, SupplySide Network 365 will help connect the industry and it will serve as the official app of the upcoming SupplySide East and SupplySide West in-person events. Free trial memberships are available for all industry members through March 31, 2021.
