For our eighth annual “Let’s Send Hunger Packing!” food drive for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, we have teamed up with Groundwork Coffee and Compass Real Estate.
The LA Regional Food Bank is making extraordinary efforts with its Summer Hunger Program to fill the need during this pandemic summer. They are working with local school districts and with hundreds of their partner agencies in neighborhoods across the County to safely get badly needed, healthy food to children and their families. BUT, the COVID-19 crisis has resulted in many more families in need, and unplanned expenses for the LA Food Bank.
NorthStar Moving is so proud to partner with Compass Real Estate and Groundwork Coffee, but we need YOU. Hungry kids need YOU. Just five dollars will feed a child for a day.
In the Los Angeles Unified School District, the second largest district in the nation, nearly 80% of the children live in poverty and struggle with hunger. Now children are at home full-time and parents have been unable to work due to COVID-19 closures, many families are in dire situations.
Kids and their families need our support more than ever. Normally, we find we must raise awareness about the shocking truth that we have hunger in our own community. This year, we are all now acutely aware of the hunger crisis and how it is exacerbated by the pandemic. Not only are children at home with parents working limited to no hours, but in a typical summer, many low-income children must work to help out their families. Those jobs have also mostly disappeared due to the COVID-19 crisis, making putting food on the table for kids and their families an even bigger challenge.

The uncertain future
Will kids be back to school full-time? Will they get those school lunches? Will the jobs return in time to put dinner on the table? We might be feeling overwhelmed by the scope of this heart wrenching problem and by our own new reality. But, let us invite you to do something simple that will make you feel good; it turns out it’s easy to do good. Join us. When we work together as a community, we can make sure all of our children are fed. Your five dollars, your fifty dollars, your five hundred dollars – working together we can truly make an impact. We are asking everyone to please join us in sending hunger packing!
