We buy health bars to nourish our own bodies, but what if we could also nourish a child in need every time we were enjoying a nutritious snack? That's the idea behind KUTOA health bars, handmade energy bars that operate on a buy one, give one model.
Launched in 2011 and based in San Francisco, KUTOA health bars are 100% natural and a delicious source of energy. Staying true to their name -- KUTOA means "to give" in Swahili -- the founders have integrated giving in the heart of their mission, giving a health pack to a child in need with each purpose.
"It is a company that empowers people," the site says. "When you purchase a KUTOA Health Bar, you are not only making a health conscious decision in your own life, you are also giving health to hungry child. The health you give this child will empower them to live a healthy life, go to school, and become a contributing member of their community."
They are partnered with the World Food Program, a US-based nonprofit aiming to end global hunger. The nutrition packs they supply are rich in micronutrients, vitamins and minerals necessary for a healthy body and mind for children from six months old to four years old.
