In late 2014, the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) sent a donation of Manna Pack meals to Guatemala in partnership with the Juan Bautista Gutierrez Foundation and Feed My Starving Children. These meals contain fortified rice with soy protein, vitamins and minerals. More than 1,200 boxes were donated, allowing the preparation of 272,160 fortified meals to help combat malnutrition.
