Silk Puts Michael Phelps and Aly Raisman on Soy Milk Cartons
Plant-based beverage brand Silk announced it has teamed up with two of the world’s most recognized athletes—Michael Phelps, one of the most decorated athletes of all time, and Aly Raisman, world champion gymnast—as the new faces of its soymilk line.
Phelps and Raisman join Silk to help provide nourishment to people who need it most through a donation of 1.5 million meals ($150,000) to Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization.
"I've enjoyed soymilk for years and am excited to be working with Silk while also helping to support Feeding America!" said Phelps. "This period of slowing down has reminded me about the importance of both physical and mental health, and how food plays such an essential role in our daily life. Both Silk and I realize how important it is to keep everyone fueled, and we are proud to help support people in need during these challenging times."
Phelps and Raisman will also be providing a mix of healthy recipes and training tips shared on social media throughout the spring. As the new faces of soymilk, Phelps and Raisman will grace the front of Silk Soymilk cartons hitting shelves this May and star in an upcoming creative campaign.
"I've enjoyed the benefits of incorporating more plant-based meals into my diet over the past few years, and Silk Soymilk has been a great source of protein to keep me fueled and focused—whether I'm on the road or, like right now, spending more time at home," said Raisman. "I'm honored to work with Silk and appreciate their shared commitment to give back to families in need through Feeding America."
