IMS Joins Effort to Combat Child Hunger & Malnutrition
The IMS Executive Council has formalized its support for The Six-Second Project by making a donation to the non-profit organization. The Six-Second Project is partnering with the global meat industry to help fight child hunger and malnutrition and, along with its official media sponsor, GlobalMeatNews.com, is challenging all sectors of the industry to join the effort. “The Six-Second Project has challenged us to unite in support of a noble cause, and we accept this challenge,” said Arturo Llavallol, IMS President. “With our donation, we invite our industry colleagues to join us in helping raise money to find solutions for hungry and malnourished children. The more who donate to The Six-Second Project, the bigger it can grow, and the more solutions we can find,” Llavallol emphasized.
