For the Third Year, NorthStar Moving Moves Unused Food from Los Angeles Marathon to a Food Bank

Chatsworth, California, UNITED STATES


Los Angeles, CA, April 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, partnered with Move for Hunger  to ensure left over food and water at the 2019 Los Angeles Marathon was not thrown away and wasted. NorthStar Moving gathered 2,793 pounds of leftover food from the marathon and delivered it to a local food bank to help feed our hungry neighbors in the greater Los Angeles community.  

 

"NorthStar Moving has always been one of our biggest supporters," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director of Move For Hunger. "Through food rescues, like this one, and food drives, they have been able to provide more than 60,000 meals for their neighbors in need. We are proud to call them our partners."

 

“For the third year, we are pleased to volunteer our team to be of service in such meaningful work; rescuing thousands of pounds of food from the finish line and delivering it to the Valley Food Bank for those that really need it,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. “Sadly, there is no finish line insight in the race to end hunger.  Giving the leftover food from big events like the LA marathon to the food banks is a step in the right direction. We are always seeking events where we can turn leftovers into meals.  We are happy to assist in the redistribution of the leftover bounty. There is no reason food ever needs to be wasted.  Together as a community, let’s move wholesome meals on to everyone’s table.”

 

NorthStar Moving has been working with Move for Hunger since 2010 and conducts an annual food drive, “Let’s Send Hunger Packing.” To learn more about NorthStar Moving’s hunger initiatives please visit www.northstarmoving.com/community
