DN Van Lines Wraps Truck to Raise Awareness About Hunger & Food Waste

October 10, 2019 | 2:48 pm | Written by

MARLBOROUGH, MA DN Van Lines has wrapped one of its moving trucks to encourage the local community to donate food when they move. More than 616,000 people in Massachusetts are food insecure, including 1 in 9 children. As a proud partner of Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization, DN Van Lines offers to pick up any unopened, non-perishable food items from its customers, year-round, to distribute to the local food pantry.

“DN Van Lines has delivered nearly 1,400 lbs. of food to the Hudson Community Food Pantry and is a longtime supporter of our organization,” says Adam Lowy, Executive Director of Move For Hunger. “This truck will certainly help to create awareness about hunger in the community and will also serve as a call to action for people who want to help.”

“We are proud to be a partner of Move For Hunger in both Massachusetts and Florida,” says Oded Carmi President of DN Van Lines. “Food insecurity is not a topic that often is widely discussed. It is important to play a role in raising awareness about hunger & food waste among the people and corporations we service. This is why we thought it was such a good idea to brand one of trucks in support of the charity. We have found that most people are willing to get behind a good cause once it is brought to their attention.”
