Michael Phelps Drops Dairy & Becomes Face Of Soy Milk Brand

The Most Decorated Olympian Of All Time Is Now The Face Of Silk Plant Based Milk

28-time Olympic medalist Michael Phelps, alongside World Champion Aly Raisman were unveiled last week as the new spokespeople for US alternative milk brand Silk. The campaign will also provide 1.5 million charity meals alongside the Feeding America Charity.

This follows a long line of high profile athletes, partly influenced by the Game Changers Documentary, reducing meat & Dair intake in their diets and switching to more plant based options for health and performance reasons.

The Impotance Of Physical & Mental Health

“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.”

“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.”

“These difficult times have posed unique challenges to all Americans, but for people who struggle with hunger, access to food is an ongoing struggle,” said Nikki Drevich, Feeding America’s interim chief development officer. “Feeding America is thankful for Silk’s donation, along with Michael and Aly’s support, which will help provide 1.5 million meals to people who need it most.”
