WHAM! Giving Back
September was World Hunger Action Month. During the month of September Stop Hunger Now and partner organizations such as the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) aimed to broaden understanding of the problems and solutions that can end hunger.
Around the world, more than 842 million people lack adequate food and more than 25,000 die each day from hunger-related illnesses.
We have asked what can WE do to end world hunger?
We at Sol Wellness believe that hunger is not just a problem around the world in other countries but also is a significant concern right here at home in New Mexico. We believe that each one of us is responsible to contribute to the health of our communities.
For the month of October, 2016 we decided to make it super easy for you to contribute to ending hunger right here at home in New Mexico. We have chosen to donate $10 from every treatment to the the non-profit company MoGro LLC. MoGro is a mobile produce truck that creates access to healthy produce in the rural areas of New Mexico. Access to fresh produce is one of the main contributing factors to food insecurity and malnutrition in rural areas and the Pueblos of New Mexico. For $20 a box of produce will feed a family of four with nutritious whole foods. Please visit the MoGro LLC website to donate more if you feel so inclined!

Just by our patients coming in and receiving treatments in the month of October (working towards their individual wellness goals) we have raised $800 that will feed 40 families (160 people). We believe that we can make a difference in promoting health throughout the community and the world by giving back to our community.
Our future goal is to donate and contribute to non-profits that aim to educate individuals and communities about sustainability, agriculture, and nutritious food choices to decrease the instances of diet related health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and inflammatory disorders. We will keep you posted as to where we are donating just from the revenue we receive from YOU working on your own WELLNESS!
THANK YOU to each and every one of you who made this possible from Sol Wellness, LLC and MoGro, LLC!
