“Extend Nutrition cares about people too, not just profit. So, every year around Memorial Day we donate a percentage of sales to an organization that supports American troops,” said Jonathan Lindberg, Extend Nutrition outreach manager. “All of our snack-foods are made in the USA and we feel it is our duty to give back.”

Wounded Warrior ProjectIn honor of the sacrifice made by United States Military veterans, this year the company has decided to donate to the Wounded Warrior Project which supports the well-being of American troops upon their return to the United States from active duty.

The Wounded Warrior Project is a military advocacy organization whose mission it is to “honor and empower our nation's wounded warriors”. Many military veterans return home with injuries and disabilities that can make the adjustment back to civilian life very difficult. By fostering a community around Wounded Warriors and by providing resources for physical and mental rehabilitation, the Wounded Warrior Project seeks to ensure that no veteran’s sacrifice is overlooked.

Extend Nutrition has donated thousands of dollars to military benefit organizations each year since 2007 including the Armed Forces Foundation (2007-2008), Operation Helmet (2009-2011) and Wounded Warrior Project (2012-2013).
