DRIVE TO FEED

DRIVE TO FEED
Nutra Blend is committed to the agriculture industry and the people that agriculture serves. Nutra Blend’s philanthropic efforts center around an initiative - feeding hungry children, both here in the U.S., around the world. This effort is also dedicated to the promotion and advocacy of modern agriculture in its role to providing a safe, affordable and sustainable food supply to a growing population. 

From this initiative derives three missions, Drive the Message, Drive to Feed Kids and Drive: No Boundaries. Nutra Blend works with its dedicated customers and suppliers to make these missions into a movement of commitment, accomplishing big goals to help feed hungry children today while educating society on the truth of modern agriculture so that children won’t go hungry tomorrow.

DRIVE TO FEED: THREE MISSIONS, ONE MOVEMENT

A HISTORY OF DRIVE TO FEED

In 2013, Nutra Blend created the Chew on This tour. We turned a tractor-trailer into a mobile theater and took it around the country, showing videos that dispelled the myths and misconceptions about our food supply and educating that hunger is the biggest killer in the world today. Hundreds of thousands visited our mobile theater, each leaving with more knowledge on modern agriculture and its amazing practices to feed a hungry world. 

In 2014, Nutra Blend launched Drive to Feed Kids, a program where Nutra Blend joins with customers and suppliers to help feed food insecure children in their local communities. Millions of meals have been provided to food insecure kids across the U.S. However, our efforts to feed hungry children should not be limited by our nation’s borders.

In 2015, Chew on This evolved from a mobile theater to the big screen. Drive the Message was born with the unveiling of the made-for-TV film, "Ivy League Farmer." From there, a second movie, "Where the Fast Lane Ends" and television show "Chasing Down Madison Brown" was introduced.

In 2016, Nutra Blend decided to take Drive to Feed one step further. During the 2016 Nutra Blend Customer Rewards Trip in St. Maarten, the Drive: No Boundaries mission was introduced as a fundraising effort to help hungry children across the world, starting with Haiti. During this launch, the inaugural Drive: No Boundaries live and silent auction was performed. This one incredible night raised more than $1.4 million for a nonprofit organization, Meds and Food for Kids, in Haiti.

Drive to Feed has grown exponentially through the support and partnership of the agriculture community. Through these missions, modern agriculture is reaching society in its true, positive light. Through these missions, hungry children across the world and right here in the U.S. are receiving the food they desperately need. Together, these three missions have turned into a unified movement with a bright future ahead.
