Ryan Devlyn This Bar Saves Lives
October 6, 2016•7 min
Many TV viewers recognize young actor Ryan Devlin from his roles on Veronica Mars and Jane the Virgin or as host of MTV’s hit dating show Are You the One. In addition to his acting career, Ryan spearheaded the launch of This Bar Saves Lives, a snack bar (found in Starbucks, Whole Foods, Target, etc.) with a worldwide life-saving impact. A few years ago, Ryan traveled to Africa for a humanitarian trip and saw the tragedy of severe malnutrition in children. Upon his return, Ryan and his co-founders (including his Veronica Mars co-star Kristen Bell) came up with one of the most direct life-saving efforts available. For every This Bar Saves Lives snack bar sold, a life-saving packet of food is sent to a child in need. Although 2.6 million children die of malnutrition each year, This Bar Saves Lives is having a direct impact on helping children, having sent well over a million food packets thus far.
