This Bar Saves Lives® is the manufacturer of exceptionally good snack bars; each bar is a delicious, perfectly balanced and healthy blend of nuts, seeds and fruits guaranteed to make anyone happy. In 2013, Ryan Devlin and Todd Grinnell traveled to Africa on a humanitarian trip and saw first-hand the tragedy of severe acute malnutrition in children throughout the region, but also how this condition could be effectively combated through a supplement called Plumpy’Nut®. Upon returning to the states, they, along with co-founders Ravi Patel and actress Kristen Bell, created one of the most direct life-saving efforts in the marketplace. This Bar Saves Lives® was built on a simple and impactful premise: For every bar sold, we give life-saving food to a child in need. We eat together.

Each one of these limited edition gift boxes includes the equivalent amount of snack bars to help save a life. That’s because for every bar in the box, This Bar Saves Lives donates a packet of lifesaving food to a child in need throughout the world.tumblr_odgj1fj17j1snpcs2o1_r1_1280

Available in a limited run of 100, each premium handcrafted wooden box is numbered and carved with the message, “You’re a lifesaver.” Sliding out the engraved panel reveals 12 boxes of This Bar Saves Lives’ premium fruit and nut bars in a variety of gourmet flavors, and a personally signed letter from company founders Ryan Devlin, Todd Grinnell, Ravi Patel and Kristen Bell.
