Move For Hunger

Move for Hunger

Many people throw out a good deal of “stuff” when they move. Unfortunately a lot of this “stuff” is food that can be delivered to a family in need. That’s why NorthStar Moving Corporation has teamed up with Move For Hunger, a non-profit organization that works with moving companies across the country to support the efforts of local food banks. In the last seven years, Move for Hunger’s network of movers, realtors and corporate housing providers have delivered 7 million pounds of food.

Fact: More than 1.7 million people living in Los Angeles County are at risk for hunger every day. Forty percent of those in need are children. With times getting tighter these numbers are dramatically increasing. Thousands in our community need your help.

Here’s how you can effortlessly help your community when you move:

 

Here’s a handy guide for your move day with a list of food banks’ “Most Wanted” items.

NorthStar Moving has collected enough food to provide over 10,000 life-saving meals to Los Angeles and Orange County!

These are some of the projects we’ve worked on in cooperation with Move for Hunger:

 

 

Delivering food to the Alameda County Community Food Bank 2021

The Boy Scouts of the Golden Gate area held their annual food drive called Scouting for Food 2021. The donations were distributed between a few local food banks: Alameda Food Bank, Alameda County Community Food Bank, American Canyon Emergency Food Bank, Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, Napa Food Bank, San Francisco – Marin Food Bank, St. Helena Food Pantry, United Christian Parish Pantry.

Move for Hunger asked NorthStar Moving to deliver the donations given to the Alameda County Community Food Bank. When our NorthStar Moving team arrived at the donation drop off point, they found 16 bins and a lot more food that was not yet packed. Our team helped pack all the extra items into our moving boxes, and delivered everything to the Alameda County Community Food Bank in two trips. We were amazed by the generosity of our community: we transported 14,926 pounds of food which equates to 12,438 meals. 

Here are  few photos taken by our team during the delivery on November 13, 2021:

    Here are excerpts from a thank you email Move for Hunger sent us after the delivery:

    Hope you are doing well since we last spoke! […]  It’s really awesome to hear the team took the initiative to help move things forward. We really appreciate their flexibility. […]  

    Thank you again for all your help and coordination with this event. When the food bank sent us the results we were completely blown away, not only by the entire quantity of food collected, but specifically how much NorthStar was able to transport!! 

    We are more than pleased to share that you & your team transported 14,926 pounds of food which equates to 12,438 meals provided to your neighbors in need!! I’ve attached your Hunger Fighting Hero award to this email to share with the group. 

    Thank you does not even begin to cover how appreciative the Alameda County Food Bank, the Boy Scouts USA, and we are for assisting with this. We literally and physically could not have done it without you! […]  

    Thank you so much for everything & talk soon

     

    Delivering food and water to the LA Mission 2021

    There are often a lot of leftovers after events like a marathon or a festival. In order to not let them go to waste and help local communities at the same time, Move for Hunger matches movers with events in their communities when the need arises. Move For Hunger asked for our help in picking up leftover food and water from the Vegandale Festival and delivering it to the LA Mission.
