Move for Hunger & NorthStar Moving Team Up to Deliver Unused Food from Marathon to Food Bank
Los Angeles, CA, March 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, has once again partnered with Move for Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, to ensure leftover food and water at the 2022 Los Angeles Marathon will not be thrown away and wasted.
At the conclusion of the LA Marathon on Sunday, March 20, 2022, NorthStar Moving’s team will pick-up the leftover food and deliver it to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. “Large events like the LA Marathon provide an opportunity to rescue thousands of meals. NorthStar Moving’s partnership will allow us to make sure any unused food and beverages at the finish line are delivered to those who need them most,” said Move For Hunger’s Executive Director Adam Lowy.
“Since 2017, we have picked up over 15,000 pounds of food from the LA Marathon,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. “We are thrilled that the LA Marathon is fully back on in its traditional March time slot. We are honored to be able to transport the unused food from the marathon to the LA Regional Food Bank. One in five people in Los Angeles County experiences hunger. Especially during this challenging time of rising food costs, the food bank needs all of us to contribute. There is never a reason to waste food. We’re happy to do anything we can to move food on to tables of those in need.”
NorthStar Moving has been working with Move for Hunger since 2010 and conducts an annual summer food drive, “Let’s Send Hunger Packing.” To learn more about NorthStar Moving’s hunger initiatives please visit www.northstarmoving.com/community.
