Todd Grinnell and Ryan Devlin took a humanitarian trip to Liberia where they met kids who were suffering from severe malnutrition. It was heartbreaking, but also inspiring because they saw the incredibly simple, life-saving nutrition that was returning them to health. They decided right there to get more nutrition to kids in need, so back home they met up with their friends Ravi Patel and Kristen Bell to figure out how. They made a LOT of snack bars in their kitchens and then partnered up with the best non-profit organizations around. Before long, This Saves Lives was born!
