Penny has partnered with Thrive for Good as an Ambassador as she is passionate about making a difference and impacting the world. Two billion people don’t get the life-giving nutrients they need to reach their full potential.

Thrive empowers communities with the training and simple tools they need to sustainably grow an abundance of healthy, organic, disease-fighting foods for life.
