Chatsworth, California, UNITED STATES

Los Angeles, CA, March 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, partnered with Move for Hunger to ensure leftover food and water at the March 8, 2020 Los Angeles Marathon was not thrown away and wasted. NorthStar Moving gathered 2,313 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.  

“Over the past 4 years, NorthStar Moving Company has rescued nearly 17,500 lbs. of food and beverages from the Los Angeles Marathon,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director/Founder of Move For Hunger. “More than 1.1 million people in Los Angeles County are food insecure, including 1 in 4 children. We are so proud to work with a company that is so committed to rescuing food for their neighbors in need.”

“Each 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. “Since the LA Marathon we have entered the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the need to feed our community has increased and our food banks are in urgent need of more food, especially shelf-stable food. When thinking about what you can do to help your community in this uncertain time, please think about donating to your local food bank. There should be no food wasted, especially now.  Every little bit helps.”

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
