Give Back, One Shake at a Time

scoop  »  Announcements

August 31, 2018

Did you know that 41 million people in the U.S. are facing hunger? This includes 13 million children and over 5 million seniors –many of which live right here, in our own neighborhoods and communities.

We believe there’s a path to a brighter future. That’s why we’ve launched Nourish One™–an initiative where a serving of Plexus Lean™ for you also helps a child or family in need.

Shake up a serving & help those in need

How does Nourish One work? It’s simple. Each time you nourish yourself with a Plexus Lean™ shake, you are helping provide a meal* to someone in need. That’s because for every serving of Plexus Lean you purchase, Plexus® and Plexus Charities will give a monetary contribution to Feeding America®.

Feeding America is the nation’s largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger by connecting people with nutritious food through a nationwide network of member food banks. Donors, staff, and volunteers play a critical role in accomplishing this mission, which is why Plexus is proud to be a partner.

Why choose Plexus Lean?

Not only does Plexus Lean give help you give back, it’s also an amazing way to support your healthy lifestyle.

Plexus Lean is a 100% vegetarian shake that delivers nutrition and energy. It’s also free from common allergens including gluten, soy, and dairy; is Non-GMO; and doesn’t include any artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners.

Unlike other protein shakes, Plexus Lean was formulated to provide the essential nutrition your body needs. This shake includes 20 grams of ultra-pure, plant-based protein from pea, rice, and ancient grains.

Plexus Lean is a great way to get more protein in your diet, without sacrificing nutrition. That’s because Lean features 24 essential vitamins and minerals in highly-bioavailable forms–ensuring your body can get the nutrients it needs more easily. This includes 5-MTHF folate, B Vitamins, Calcium, Potassium, Vitamins A, D, and E, Zinc, and others.

Something else Plexus Lean offers is digestion support from three fibers including XOS, a-GOS, and FOS.

Lean into Hunger Action Month this September

September is Hunger Action Month, so it’s a great time to show your support! While Nourish One helps children and families in need all year, we’re serving up several options this month to make it even easier to contribute and get involved:

  • Spread the word about Nourish One™ and thank those who have already purchased Lean for their contribution
  • Go orange on social media to show your support of Feeding America and increase awareness with tools launching September 1.
  • Donate to Feeding America through this secure donation page
  • Join our Shake Off Bake Off contest with your favorite Lean recipe. Plexus will donate $2,500 to Feeding America on behalf of the contest winner! Keep an eye out for more details to come!
  • For more information and to find a food bank in your area, visit FeedingAmerica.org.

Every day, hunger could be impacting your neighbors, coworkers, and your children’s friends or classmates. Thankfully, each of us can make a real difference and we hope you will join us and act during Hunger Action Month in September and always.

*Every bag of Plexus Lean sold contributes a donation equivalent of 14 meals to Feeding America®, providing at least 1.5 million meals annually. $1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.
