Miami, FL – March 24, 2022 – Globe Newswire – Smart for Life, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMFL) (“Smart for Life” or the “Company”), a global leading developer, marketer, and manufacturer of nutritional and related products, announced today that it is shipping over 100,000 meal replacement bars to help those in need in the war-torn country of Ukraine.
This initial shipment of aid from Smart for Life is expected to leave Miami for Poland, with the final destination of Kyiv, where it will be distributed to Ukrainians on the ground. Smart for Life is partnering with the Ukraine Sovereignty Fund (“USF”) in order to coordinate the extensive logistics and on-the-ground expertise necessary to deliver the aid to Ukrainians.
“The devastating war in Ukraine is driving millions of families from their homes into hunger,” stated Ryan Zackon, Smart for Life’s Chief Executive Officer. “Smart for Life is partnering with the Ukraine Sovereignty Fund to make sure this delivery of food reaches Ukrainians on the ground. Each of these meal replacement bars provides much needed nutrition, in addition to being compact in size and lightweight so refugees and Ukrainians on the front lines can take them where they are needed most.”
