The holiday season is a very exciting time for many different reasons, but at Move For Hunger, our favorite part is all of the food drives! Everyone deserves a Thanksgiving dinner with their family, and it’s the kindness from all over the country that make these meals possible during this time of year. Dixie Moving & Storage, a Bekins agent, is a perfect example of that kindness, in fact they held not one, but two food drives last weekend!

The food drives were held at Harmons Grocery in St. George, Utah and Lin’s Fresh Market in Cedar City. To make things a little more interesting, Dixie Moving & Storage made it competition to see which location could collect the most. Both nonperishable and perishable items were encouraged for donation, including turkeys for Thanksgiving, and we are happy to report that both locations had super successful drives. Lin’s Fresh Market collected an impressive 1,329 pounds of food! Harmons Grocery did an awesome job as well, collecting 2,416 pounds! Combined, the totals from these two food drives will be enough to provide more than 3,120 meals. 

There are more 382,000 people in Utah who are food insecure, including 1 in 7 children. The donations collected by Dixie Moving & Storage have been delivered to the Utah Food Bank and will be able to help these families and individuals in need. Thanks so much to the Dixie team for taking the time to make a difference in their community this Thanksgiving. Way to set a great example!
