We like to move it, move it - food donations, that is! We wouldn’t be able to make our impact as big as we do without our mover network. That’s why, each month, Move For Hunger chooses a moving company that has done an awesome job in the fight against hunger and names them Mover of the Month. For January, Budd Van Lines- South-Central Branch has been named our Mover of the Month!
Budd Van Lines, located in Irving, Texas, started 2022 with a bang by coming through to transport nearly 2,000lbs of donations from seven different locations throughout north Texas. This will provide more than 1,500 meals to food insecure families and individuals throughout Texas.
The van line has been part of Move For Hunger’s mover network since 2014, and has donated and transported more than 3,800lbs of food, equalling more than 3,200 meals, to local food banks and pantries.
“Joining the Move For Hunger mover network was a great opportunity to help those in need with what others are willing to give,” said Linda Rodriguez, General Manager of Budd Van Lines - Texas Branch. “It’s a great program, and I can honestly say we don’t really know how much we accumulate in our pantries until it’s time to move.”
We’re thankful for Budd Van Lines and their dedication to fighting hunger, especially since more than 4 million people are food insecure in Texas. In North Texas alone, over 650,000 people are food insecure, so every donation counts!
