PERHAM, MINN. — NutriSource, owned by KLN Family Brands, announced its new philanthropic program NutriSource Superstars Giving on Jan. 31, coinciding with the release of its new NutriSource Superstars Training Reward Treats. The company will donate all profits earned from the new treats to organizations across the United States dedicated to people and pets.
“A core belief of our companies is that we have an obligation to make a difference,” said Charlie Nelson, chief executive officer of KLN Family Brands. “The NutriSource SuperStars Giving Program formalizes our enduring commitment to do our part towards creating a better world. We are proud to give every cent of profit from NutriSource SuperStars Training Rewards Treats to organizations that lift up, support and inspire us in times of need.”
The new NutriSource SuperStars Training Rewards Treats are small, star-shaped treats available in chicken, beef and cheddar flavors. The low-calorie, nutrient-dense treats are formulated without corn, potato, soy or wheat and come in 4-oz, 6-oz and 16-oz packages.
The NutriSource Superstars Giving program is not the first philanthropic effort for the company. Since 2018, the company has donated more than $3 million to organizations like the Pinky Swear Foundation, Solider’s 6 and to other animal shelters, pet rescues, humane societies and non-profit veterinary care organizations. In 2019, NutriSource donated $250,000 to M Health Fairview University of Minnesota Masonic Chidlren’s Hospital to help fund the facility’s first therapy dog, Rocket.
NutriSource’s new giving program will fund therapy dog programs at children’s hospitals, providing children and their families with a calming presence. The company also has plans create another program dedicated to training and providing service dogs to first-responders and veterans with disabilities.
