West Hills, CA—Nature Made has fully funded every classroom request made by Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), the second-largest school district in the nation, as part of the company’s #TeachHealthy campaign. The donation exceeded $1 million, according to the press release.

DonorsChoose is an education nonprofit through which teachers can request materials they need for classrooms, and donors can choose projects to financially support.

Two of the teachers impacted this year were Ellen Ochoa Learning Center’s Ms. Manzo and George K. Porter Middle School’s Mr. Kangas. Ms. Manzo’s third- through fifth-grade classes received diverse and inclusive books in both Spanish and English. Mr. Kangas’s sixth-grade class was gifted new gardening tools.

“We are deeply proud of the impact we are making in supporting thousands of teachers nationwide with the launch of #TeachHealthy during this critical back-to-school season,” said Rhonda Hoffman, Chief Marketing Officer at Pharmavite, the makers of Nature Made, in the press release. “As a company founded and based in the Los Angeles area, flash funding all LAUSD projects through DonorsChoose takes on special meaning for us because it will have a direct impact on the schools attended by many of our employees’ families and their neighbors.”

DonorsChoose Founder Charles Best remarked: “We’re so grateful for Nature Made’s continued support of our teachers and students, including today’s generous surprise for Los Angeles classrooms. Teachers are working harder than ever to help their students learn and thrive, and Nature Made’s support will mean hundreds of Los Angeles teachers will have additional resources to make this year a success.”

Nature Made is giving over 7 million servings of immune-support products to teachers. An additional $4 million will go towards providing teachers with supplies necessary to maintain a healthy learning environment. To view all funded projects and learn more, visit

My name is Becca & I am the Communications Associate for WholeFoods Magazine (WFM). Food has always been something I take pretty seriously. Don’t believe me? On a trip to move my sister into her new apartment, I stood in line for three hours at a famous bakery, while the rest of my family moved heavy boxes and furniture into her new place. They couldn’t be too mad at me though, after I arrived home with a box of delicious sweets. Needless to say, I am definitely a foodie or whatever you want to call someone who plans day trips around food. Now that I’ve started at WFM, I am learning more about healthy, organic, natural food options. So now I am on a mission to explore healthier recipes, using natural and organic products. Join me as we explore some new takes on classic favorites + maybe some new recipes that have yet to be discovered (by me anyway).
