Los Angeles, CA, Sept. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, announced that their ninth annual “Let’s Send Hunger Packing” food drive raised $41,370 and collected boxes of food for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, providing 165,480 meals to feed hungry children in Los Angeles County.

“We are grateful for NorthStar Moving’s continued support as the need for food assistance in our community remains high,” said President and CEO of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank Michael Flood. “Partnerships like this are so valuable as we work to alleviate hunger for people throughout Los Angeles County.” 

One out of four children in Los Angeles County are at risk of going to bed hungry.  A daily decision for millions of families in LA County is choosing between buying food or paying for other crucial needs such as medicine, bills or childcare. Since the onset of the pandemic, the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank has worked tirelessly to keep up with  the increase in demand for food from families. In 2020, 98.6% of the Food Bank’s revenue went directly to their programs and services that serve 900,000 people each month.

“I want to thank Groundwork Coffee and Compass Real Estate for once again partnering with us in a very challenging time,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. “In nine years, we’ve raised more than 485,000 meals through our Let’s Send Hunger Packing food drive; and we will continue each and every year. In an era when the need is at its greatest, we are so grateful to everyone who helped make a difference in the lives of hungry children throughout the LA region. Fighting hunger is a year-round battle, please donate all year long to your local food bank. Just $23 per month helps provide a year’s worth of food to someone in need!
