The Place At Forest Ridge donates over 1,000 meals during Spring Into Action Food Drive, making them Community of the Month

May 12, 2022

Move For Hunger’s April Community of the Month award goes to The Place at Forest Ridge, an MC Companies property. This award is designated for multifamily properties that have done exceptional work in helping us eliminate hunger.  
 
Located in Arizona, The Place At Forest Ridge, collected 542 lbs, equalling over 450 meals, during their Spring Into Action Food Drive. The donated food benefits the Flagstaff Family Food Center.
 
The MC Companies Spring into Action Food Drive occurred in 24 locations across the southwest, where they made a collective donation of over 5,900 lbs, equalling nearly 5,000 meals to fight hunger.  
 
Since joining the Move For Hunger network in 2019, The Place at Forest Ridge has collected over 1,400 lbs (1,166 meals) that were used to help multiple families encountering food insecurity. 
 
“Chances are, you know someone that has been impacted by hunger and needed assistance. Working together with Move For Hunger helps us make even more of a positive impact,” said Ciara Hufford, Property Director. “We see first-hand the positive impact the program has on our own community. It is amazing to see how many meals and thus how many families we have been able to help!” 
 
Thanks to The Place at Forest Ridge for their efforts in the MC Companies Spring Into Action Food Drive for providing over 450 meals to food-insecure individuals. We are extremely thankful since in Arizona about 900,000 people are food insecure. Every donation counts!
