HERBALIFE FAMILY FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB’S POWER COMMUNITY PROGRAM SUPPORTING NUTRITION EDUCATION

AUSTRALIA, February 2018 – Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF) today announced that it will support Power Community Limited to provide nutrition education for students of the Community’s Aboriginal AFL Academy. This makes Power Community Limited the fifth organisation in Australia to reap the benefits of HFF’s flagship Casa Herbalife Program and the first charity in South Australia to join the Program.

The Herbalife Family Foundation is a non-profit corporation which establishes partnerships with various organisations locally and globally to bring good nutrition to children in need through financial and volunteer support.

The Herbalife Family Foundation will provide Power Community Limited with a AUD$20,000 grant, which will enable the Aboriginal AFL Academy to teach students about healthy eating, nutrition and meal planning, while involving them in wellbeing workshops with a nutritionist. There will be health screening and fitness programs, recognising and applying exercise considerations for specific populations, and incorporating anatomy and physiology principles into fitness programming.
Power Community Limited was created by the Port Adelaide Football Club to drive social and economic change through delivering programs to young people in South Australia and the Northern Territory. Power Community Limited’s programs address wellbeing and resilience, understanding, recognising and developing respectful relationships, and cultural awareness programs to Aboriginal young people.

“We are so proud that our contribution to Power Community Limited will help the Aboriginal AFL Academy students embrace better nutrition. Our aim of making the world a healthier and happier place neatly dovetails with the culture and ethos of Power Community Limited,” said Rod Taylor, General Manager, Herbalife Nutrition Australia and New Zealand.

Paul Vandenbergh, Director, Aboriginal Programs, Power Community Limited said this new relationship with Herbalife Nutrition and the Herbalife Family Foundation sets the scene for a great year ahead with the Aboriginal AFL Academy.

“This relationship is a testament to the generosity of Herbalife Nutrition members and employees, who are continuously donating their time and funds to support the organisations within the Casa Herbalife Program,” said Paul Vandenbergh.

“Power Community Limited is grateful for the support and knows the Herbalife Family Foundation partnership will make a real difference to the lives of the students involved in this nutrition program.”

As well as Power Community Limited, Herbalife Family Foundation currently supports The Infants’ Home in New South Wales, Lighthouse Foundation in Victoria, Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation in Western Australia and Sunshine Butterflies in Queensland.
