LOS ANGELES (Business Wire) -- The Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF) has announced the opening of its second Casa Herbalife program in Texas.
The new grant will support The Wilkinson Center's HEALTHYBody program, which teaches children how to lead a healthy lifestyle through nutrition education and physical activity. It is a comprehensive curriculum that addresses body image, eating, fitness, and weight concerns and seeks to prevent eating disorders and obesity.
Through this grant, HFF will assist The Wilkinson Center in funding its work in promoting health and wellness among the 400 children, ages 6-13, who currently benefit from the organization's programming and services.
Established in 1982, the Wilkinson Center is a dynamic service provider for families struggling to escape poverty, providing services throughout nine zip codes in east and southeast Dallas, including Pleasant Grove.
The Casa Herbalife program is HFF's flagship nutrition program, which offers grants to non-profit organizations that provide supportive, social services to underprivileged children around the world in the areas of nutrition education, kitchen reconstructions, meals and other programs that support children's good nutrition.
The Casa Herbalife program was established in 2005, to help bring good nutrition to children living in orphanages, after school centers, and other non-profit facilities. After the initial financial grants made by HFF, the organizations receive local financial and volunteer support from Herbalife independent distributors, as well as corporate employees.
