2020 was a challenging year for us all, particularly for vulnerable communities and the charities supporting them. With the help of funding from Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF) our Casa Partners in Australia and New Zealand were able to achieve positive impacts for the children and young people they serve, and we thank all Herbalife Nutrition Independent Members for supporting HNF through the Bike Ride, raffles, silent auctions, donations and volunteering.
As an extension of their Farmyard Cooking School activities, Sunshine Butterflies produced their first cookbook to help teach people living with a disability how to cook healthy and nutritious meals using a variety of fresh and wholesome ingredients whilst practicing skills tailored for all abilities.
John O’Connell, Chief Executive of Life Education Trust New Zealand, confirmed that even whist schools were shut, they were still able teach more than 175,000 children in their mobile classrooms in 2020.
Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation ran a variety of nutrition education programs within their Refugee Health Service and provided fruit for patients and families visiting the Fun on Four activity and education area, as well as workshops by a chef to teach children in hospital about how to eat well and prepare healthy snacks.

Lighthouse Foundation completed two much-needed kitchen renovations at their facilities, including their youth resource centre kitchen; the central hub of their community, and a kitchen in one of their foster homes. CEO Simon Benjamin expressed his gratitude for HNF’s support of their youth nutrition program and said “It’s because of you that young traumatised lives in Australia are being turned around for good. I can’t thank you enough for your ongoing support.”
The ‘vegepods’ at The Infants’ Home - which were constructed by our Members on a volunteering day - continue to thrive, supplying herbs and vegetables for the children’s daily fresh food service. Their onsite chef enjoys working with children to harvest and prepare delicious foods.
