Atlas Canada Renews Partnership

September 4, 2019 | 11:47 am | Written by

OAKVILLE, ON Atlas Canada, whose agents across every province and territory provide local, long distance, international, cross border and specialized moving services, has renewed its partnership with Move For Hunger, a non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way for relocation companies to reduce food waste and fight hunger.

People tend to throw a lot of things away when they move, including perfectly good food. As proud partners of Move For Hunger, 36 of Atlas Canada’s partner agents are collecting non-perishable food from their customers and delivering it to local food banks.

“Atlas Canada agents have already provided nearly 4,500 meals to their neighbors in need,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. “One in 8 households in Canada are facing hunger, and yet we are wasting 40% of the food we produce each year. Atlas Canada and their agents are addressing both problems simultaneously. We are proud to work with companies that are so committed to helping people in the communities they serve.”

“Atlas is proud to support the communities in which we live and work across Canada,” said Barry Schellenberg, President of Atlas Canada. “Hunger remains an unfortunate reality in our society and our partnership with Move for Hunger enables us to be part of the solution. It is great to see our customers and Atlas agents work together to help food banks across the country, so they can continue their important mission of feeding hungry Canadians”.

Through the generous support of partners like Atlas Canada, Move For Hunger can continue to help the more than 4 million Canadians who are struggling to find their next meal. For more information about Move For Hunger and how you can make a difference please visit www.MoveForHunger.org.
