Did you know that many kids go hungry during the summer months? School is out and they loose access to daily school-sponsored meals.
Over the past five years, we at NorthStar Moving & Storage Company have collected over 32,936 pounds of food (equaling approximately 27,000 meals) through our food drives. This year, we are asking for your crucial assistance with our Let’s Send Hunger Packing food drive.
We are so thankful to KTLA5 TV network for putting a spotlight on our food drive and the great need for food and monetary donations now while school is out. We are also immensely grateful for the nonprofit organizations Move For Hunger and Los Angeles Regional Food Bank that both work tirelessly to feed the hungry. They are our inspiration.
Load up on these food drive facts:
• 1 out of 4 children in Los Angeles County will go to bed hungry.
• For every $1 donated, food banks can distribute $5 worth of food.
• It only takes $5 to feed a child for a day.
Donations to the food drive can be made through July 31st, 2018. There are several opportunities to make a moving difference:
