NorthStar Moving delivers unused food to Los Angeles Food Bank, providing healthy snacks for families
Los Angeles, CA, April 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, has once again partnered with Move for Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, to ensure leftover food and water at the 2023 Los Angeles Marathon was not thrown away and wasted. NorthStar Moving gathered 1,669 pounds of leftover food from the LA marathon and delivered it to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. That is equivalent to 1,391 meals!
“As a long time partner, Northstar Moving has helped provide more than 660,000 meals to the community they serve,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. “This recent food recovery at the LA Marathon is just another example of their commitment to fighting hunger and food waste.”
“For the sixth year, we are pleased to volunteer our team to be of service in such meaningful work; gathering thousands of pounds of food from the LA Marathon finish line and delivering it to the LA Food Bank for those that really need it,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. “One in five people in Los Angeles County experience hunger. During this challenging time of rising food costs, the food bank needs all of us to contribute. There is never a reason to waste food. Together as a community, let’s move meals on to tables that need them. We will soon be kicking off our annual food drive to continue the needed support to the LA Food Bank. Please join us in the fight against hunger.”
NorthStar Moving has been working with Move for Hunger since 2010 and conducts an annual summer food drive, “Let’s Send Hunger Packing.” To learn more about NorthStar Moving’s hunger initiatives please visit www.northstarmoving.com/community.
