Needs

MATTER is a global non-profit focused on providing people with healthier lives. The MATTERbox concept is simple: provide a box of healthy, shelf-stable meals and nutrition education to help people take their first steps towards a healthier life.

Individual and corporate groups of volunteers participate in the MATTERbox Challenge to pack healthy meals and prepare each MATTERbox for distribution. MATTER provides the food. Check out the MATTERbox DIY option!
