Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the eastern shores of our country last week. Like so many communities and businesses, Nutrisystem felt the impact of the storm and our headquarters were closed for four days due to power outages and local flooding. Others weren’t as lucky. For those affected by the storm and who, in so many cases, continue to deal with its aftermath, please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. We’d also like to extend our thanks to the customers and vendors who reached out to us during this time with their support and well-wishes.
Through our partnership with Feeding America (which also works closely with the American Red Cross), Nutrisystem annually donates its pantry-ready meals for those in need. Due to the tremendous need in the wake of this powerful storm, we were able to ensure that 12,500 meals are being immediately directed to Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief. The Nutrisystem meals will be distributed this week to local food banks in impacted areas.
If you would like to help out those who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy, please visit your local food bank, text REDCROSS to 90999 ($10 donation) or visit redcross.org.
