The Retreat Takes Action During Hunger Action Month, Making Them October’s Community of the Month!

November 2, 2021

The Retreat, located in Sumner, Washington, a city known for its small-town charm just outside of Tacoma, hit the ground running during Hunger Action Month, making them Community of the Month for October!

This September, the Goodman Real Estate property hosted a Hunger Action Month food drive, collecting over 900 pounds of food donated to the Puyallup Food Bank, equalling a total of 820 meals delivered to those in need. 

The Retreat joined Move For Hunger in April of 2020, and has donated over 1,000 meals to those in need. Thanks to Apex Moving and Storage for transporting the donations! Over the past several months, Apex has been an invaluable moving partner. In addition to helping The Retreat, they also transported over 30,000 pounds of food this fall, making them September’s Mover of the Month!

Every meal donated is a meal needed because in Washington state, over 800,000 people, including 1 in 7 children, face food insecurity. In Pierce County alone, over 90,000 people don’t know where their next meal will come from. We’re thankful to everyone who has joined us in the fight against hunger!

Hunger Action Month is a month-long campaign that occurs every September and combines nationwide efforts to raise hunger awareness and encourage others to join the fight. Click here to learn how you can help us fight food insecurity or sign up to host your own food drive here!
