SALT LAKE CITY, June 22, 2011 -


- 100% of Proceeds
to Benefit Children’s Hunger Fund

USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NYSE: USNA) announced today that it
will donate $10 for every ace served at WTA events throughout the
2011 season, beginning with The Championships at Wimbledon.
 The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) will support USANA’s
contribution with a $25,000 donation.  All proceeds from the
“Ace Out Hunger” program will benefit Children’s Hunger Fund (CHF),
a global nonprofit organization fighting hunger in impoverished
regions around the world.


“In tennis, an ace is a point-winning serve that isn’t returned
by the opposing player,” says Dan Macuga, USANA’s VP of Marketing
and Public Relations.  ”It is considered a demonstration of
strength and strategy-qualities that represent USANA.  Through
this charitable program, we’re able to provide food, nutrients and
vital resources to children in need.  This is a program that
is meaningful to us in many ways.”

“When you consider that an estimated 1.4 billion people live on
less than $1.25 a day, $10 can really go a long way,” says Dave
, CHF president. “We will be tuning in closely to every
match, cheering whenever an ace is scored, knowing what a
difference that single serve can make.  We cannot thank USANA
and the WTA enough for their compassion and generosity.”

“We are thrilled to contribute to the Children’s Hunger Fund
through the efforts of our world-class athletes,” said Stacey
, CEO & Chairman of the WTA. “USANA is a fantastic
partner of the WTA and this program will make a real difference in
helping children in dire need.”  

“I’ve had a chance to learn more about Children’s Hunger Fund
and am impressed by how effective they are at distributing
resources,” says Liezel Huber, former WTA No.1 doubles player and
USANA brand ambassador. “About 99% of CHF’s total contributions go
directly into their programs.  This is a charity that is doing
what it promises to do, and I’m proud to support them.”

In 2010, over 12,000 aces were scored in the season and as many
as 596 in a single tournament.  To date, USANA has donated
over $11 million in monetary and in-kind contributions to
Children’s Hunger Fund.
