PRESS RELEASE

Avante Life Ministries creates The Weekend Warrior Program to feed hungry Utah school children on the weekends!

“Avante understands that an average of 4 children in every local classroom, receives their last nutritional meal at school on Friday and will not eat a full meal again until they return the following Monday”.

Sandy, Utah August 30, 2011: Avante Life Ministries (ALM) is a nonprofit organization that is strongly committed to helping better the lives of local families and children. Avante understands that an average of 4 children in every local classroom, receives their last nutritional meal at school on Friday and will not eat a full meal again until they return the following Monday.

ALM solves these problems, helping create a positive impact on the lives of these children through our proactive program: The Weekend Warrior Program.

The Weekend Warrior Program provides children with 7 nutritional meals for the weekend that can be prepared by any child themselves, helping build self esteem and necessary life skills.

Hunger doesn’t take the weekend off. ALM’s Weekend Warrior Program provides food kits which are discreetly distributed to children identified with the guidance and recommendations of teachers, principals and other educational leaders within a given school district. ALM understands that when a young body doesn’t have enough food to keep them full, let alone to support their growing bodies and brains, the long-term implications are limitless. Our future is being stolen for the cost of a loaf of bread. Avante Ministries wants to change that.

ALM partners with communities and businesses alike to make a difference, beginning with one child, one person and one family at a time. ALM’s mission statement is: “We strive to make meaningful differences in the lives of the helpless, the hopeless, the hungry and the homeless, all with the love and grace with which God intended.”

Avante Life Ministries was founded by Jan Erickson, a local businesswoman with a strong passion for addressing the needs of the less fortunate. For many years, she has personally funded and developed successful outreach programs to feed the homeless on the streets of Salt Lake City, provide basic school supplies to needy children in the area, medications for abused women’s and children’s shelters and many other charitable programs along the Wasatch Front.

In addition, she participates in many programs worldwide to address clean water, poverty and many other issues. Ms. Erickson’s dedication and passion have helped to touch the lives of many for the better, giving them a hope for a brighter future. Avante is the culmination of these efforts, providing the opportunity for local area businesses to participate in this incredible nondenominational humanitarian focus within the local community.
