Nutritionist Amy Goodson announced on WFAA’s Good Morning Texas this week that AdvoCare was committing to food donations, professionally-led free workouts, and providing other nutrition and exercise-related resources for the general public during the COVID-19 crisis.
Food Donations to Richardson ISD
AdvoCare will be donating a total of five pallets of food or more than 130,000 food items during the next five weeks to Richardson, TX Independent School District (RISD) families through The Network of Community Ministries. The items include boxes of Lemon Blueberry AdvoBars and a variety of Meal Replacement Shakes to contribute to weekend meal boxes for students. (press release)
“AdvoCare is proud to serve the students and families in our backyard and in the Richardson ISD area through our connection with Network of Community Ministries,” said Patrick Wright, CEO for AdvoCare. “We hope this gesture will help to keep families safe and healthy as we all endeavor to care for one another during this challenging time.”
