El Dorado Hills, Calif., May 2007 – NutraCea’s (OTC BB: NTRZ) collaboration with Feed The Children and Raising Malawi has helped make possible the feeding of 10,000 orphans in Malawi for ten months. The distribution of products like NutraCea’s RiSolubles®, with its copious composition of protein, carbohydrates, healthy fats and wide range of vitamins and minerals, is a very beneficial way to help fight world hunger, as it can directly affect the overall health of the children.
“It’s grassroots efforts, like the recent endeavor by NutraCea in Malawi, that really helps make a difference in the children’s lives,” said Duwa Mutharika Kafoteka, the First Lady of Malawi’s daughter. “If more people and organizations would get involved, we could make a serious impact in the lives of those who suffer from hunger and malnutrition.”
