For the second year in a row, northAmerican Van Lines and Move For Hunger partnered together to host a two-week-long food drive from April 18 - May 2 with northAmerican® Van Line agents across the United States.
This year’s Great northAmerican Food Drive had nearly 15 different agents participating across 15 states, including Moving Solutions of Mentor, OH, Lile Moving & Storage in Lakewood, Washington, Arnoff Moving and Storage in Poughkeepsie, NY, and A-1 Freeman in Houston, TX. In total, they collected over 17,000 lbs of donations, providing over 14,000 meals to food insecure communities across the United States.
northAmerican® Van Lines partnered with Move For Hunger in 2011, and has since brought on more than 75 participating agents into the Move For Hunger network. Over the past eleven years, northAmerican® Van Lines and its agents have helped transport over 650,000lbs, equalling more than 545,000 meals, to food banks and pantries in the United States and Canada.
The first Great northAmerican Food Drive was last April, and collected an incredible 25,700lbs of donations, providing 21,500 meals to food insecure communities.
Through the support of partners like northAmerican® Van Lines and its parent company SIRVA, who is also a partner, Move For Hunger can continue to fight for the families, individuals, and children who are most in need of food assistance.
