organization. It officially launched on January 1, 2015 in partnership

Mannatech’s PhytoBlend powder is designed to help in the fight against
global malnutrition by providing children in need with valuable,
supplemental nutrition that mixes easily into the foods they’re already
eating. PhytoBlend powder contains nutrients from plants and other
natural sources, allowing children to receive standardized and
nutritionally beneficial amounts of vitamins, minerals and
phytonutrients in a natural form unique to the industry.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the M5M Foundation’s accomplishments in its
first year,” said M5M Executive Director, Sarah Bowen. “With Mannatech’s
help, we were able to efficiently distribute 41 percent more PhytoBlend
than previous years due to a new structure and streamlined process that
we have found to be more effective. I can’t wait to see what we can do
together in this next year, and I look forward to reaching even more
children with help from all of our partners.”
