Far too many young and old alike go to bed hungry each day. Each one of us can act to help end hunger, every little bit helps.
From May 2 – June 17, 2016, NorthStar Moving and Coldwell Banker combined forces again to send hunger packing in our 4th Annual Let’s Send Hunger Packing! Food Drive.
Our community rallied up together as donations were dropped off in Coldwell Banker Offices in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, in the NorthStar Moving office and at Murad Inclusive Health Spa. Total combined donations reached 7132 lbs. Together we can feed even more kids this year!
Here are some photos of the 2016 food drive. See more photos here.
- 1 out of 4 children in Los Angeles and 1 out of 5 children in Orange County will suffer from hunger.
- More than 2.1 million people in LA County and Orange County are at risk for hunger everyday.
- For every $1 donated, food banks can distribute $5 worth of food.
- It only takes $5 to feed a child for a day.
KTLA 5 News and Lu Parker covered the food drive in 2014.
