Modern Optical Booth #13026-  Helps Fight Hunger During Vision Expo West FEED Cotton USA laminated Modern Optical International will also fight hunger in America.

In celebration of its new booth (#13026) at Vision Expo West, Modern Optical International will give back by fighting hunger in America through its support of FEED Projects, an organization committed to ending hunger. Eyecare professionals attending Vision Expo are invited to partake in this important initiative that helps children and their families across America receive healthy, nutritious food. With a purchase of ten or more frames from our Modern Art, GVX, Modz Titanium or Modz Flex Collections, show attendees will receive this “FEED USA 10” tote which provides10 meals to children and their families. This is a wonderful opportunity for ECPs to support communities in need from coast to coast.

Ken Weissman, President of Modern Optical International, describes the significance of this initiative: “Hunger is a serious problem facing 49 million Americans every day. It negatively impacts people’s health, including their vision. Because so many eyecare professionals rely on our frames for their managed care programs, our eyewear can be found in communities similar to those receiving meals from FEED-sponsored programs. Our hope is that the “FEED USA 10” tote bags create an awareness of the mounting hunger problem in this country. Together, we can all make a difference.”

Each “FEED USA 10” canvas tote is made using environmentally friendly materials. Sturdy construction and soft handles make it ideal for Vision Expo. Learn more about FEED Projects at  Visit Modern’s Booth #13026 for complete details on all show promotions.  visit
