Last month, Northstar Moving Company organized the 7th annual Let's Send Hunger Packing Food Drive!
From June 3-14, Northstar Moving encouraged people to drop off non-perishable food at Northstar Moving Company's headquarters and other locations in Los Angeles. Nearly 900 lbs. of food was collected and delivered to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. That's enough to provide 740 meals!
“I am so proud of and inspired by our team and the community,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder, Laura McHolm. “We had a fantastic group of individuals and organizations support us this year, including Groundwork Coffee. We are so grateful for their support and to everyone who helped make a difference in the lives of hungry children throughout the LA region. Please remember, this is something all of us can do to make a difference in a hungry child’s life; just donate to your local food bank, it’s as easy as a click of a button.”
This year's donation from NorthStar Moving Company comes at a critical time for food-insecure families with children who struggle to fill the summer meal gap when school meals are not available," said Michael Flood, President and CEO of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
More than 1 million people in Los Angeles County are food insecure, including 1 in 6 children. To make matters worse, children who typically receive reduced-cost or free breakfast 7 lunch can't count on those meals during the summer. Low-income families rely on food banks to help replace those meals, and that's why the Let's Send Hunger Packing Food Drive is so important.
Since joining our network in 2010, NorthStar Moving Company has delivered nearly 50,000 lbs. of food to California food banks -- that's the equivalent of 41,400 meals. Thank you to Laura McHolm and the entire NorthStar Moving team for your continued support!
