For this giveaway, California-based properties in the FPI Management portfolio signed-up for the Move for Hunger program to be in the running to give one lucky resident the chance to win a Nissan Leaf, donated by Chargie. A Los Angeles-based electric vehicle infrastructure company, Chargie provides a turnkey solution for networked EV charging stations.
“The average U.S. household spends a fifth of its budget on transportation. We are taking aim at reducing transportation costs and environmental inequality by providing access to electric vehicles and charging infrastructure in disadvantaged communities. We’re fortunate to have partners like Move for Hunger and FPI Management working with us on creating a more sustainable world for everyone,” said Chris Vargas, SVP of Sales & Marketing at Chargie.
Hundreds of FPI communities participated in the drawing in a property-organized Trick or Can Food Drive. Move For Hunger extends a congratulations to the winning property, Meridian at Stanford Ranch, and their winning resident, Hailey Holt!
In order to participate in the raffle, residents were given one entry per five cans of food donated. Overall, Meridian at Stanford Ranch collected 9,000 pounds of food throughout the giveaway food drive, equalling 7,500 meals that were donated to Sacramento Loaves and Fishes, the largest homeless service provider in Sacramento, California.
Since joining Move For Hunger in 2019, FPI Management has added 100 properties to the Move For Hunger multi-family program, and has helped provide over 11,000 meals to food insecure communities. When joining the multi-family program, properties encourage residents to participate to donate any unopened, non-perishable food items when moving out. Once the property has collected a few bags, a transportation partner picks up the donations and delivers them to a local food bank.

So far this year, CORT Sacramento has transported over 11,000 pounds of food, delivering over 13,000 meals to food insecure communities.
