Every month, Move For Hunger celebrates one of our amazing movers that have gone out of their way to make change in their community in the fight against hunger. This June, our marvelous Mover of the Month is Mother Lode Van & Storage, an agent for NorthAmerican Van Lines. Over the last six months, Mother Lode has transported over 1,000 lbs of food, equalling more nearly 900 meals, from various apartments in Northern California, and made its mark as part of the Great NorthAmerican Food Drive!
Mother Lode Van & Storage, based in Rancho Cordova, California, has been crushing it this year in multifamily community pick-ups and transports! Mother Lode has helped recover 950 lbs of food from families moving out of apartment complexes, and donations were given to Volunteers of America in Northern California and Northern Nevada. With their participation in the Great NorthAmerican Food Drive, 113 lbs of food was transported to Rancho Cordova Food Locker, a local food pantry.
"Giving back to a community that has supported us for 30 years is like breathing air, it's automatic," said Alysha Tompkins, Office Manager. "With a partnership like Move For Hunger, we can do just that and know that the food we receive goes straight to the people that need it most."
Since Mother Lode joined Move For Hunger in January of 2019, this rockstar moving company has donated, collected and transported over 3,713 lbs of food, which is equivalent to over 3,094 meals! Over the last three years, Mother Lode has shown up and continued to help fight hunger in California where 1 in 5 Californians are considered food insecure.
