In 2013, Ryan Devlin and Todd Grinnell traveled to Africa on a humanitarian trip and saw first-hand the tragedy of severe acute malnutrition in children throughout the region, but also how this condition could be effectively combated through a supplement called Plumpy’Nut®. Upon returning to the states, Ryan and Todd, along with co-founders Ravi Patel and Kristen Bell, created one of the most direct life-saving efforts in the marketplace. This Bar Saves Lives® was built on a simple and impactful premise: For every bar sold, we give life-saving food to a child in need. We eat together.
