During spooky season we partake in annual fall traditions: pumpkin picking, binging scary movies, dressing up in our favorite costumes, and organizing Trick-or-Can food drives! Oh, you’re not familiar with that last one? It’s one of Move For Hunger’s new seasonal food drive campaigns. We asked members of our network to help us scare away hunger during October by incorporating a food drive into their Halloween festivities.
Our friends at InterWest Moving & Storage of Idaho Hills was one of many companies that responded! They held the food drive at Broulim’s grocery store, and asked shoppers to purchase non-perishable food, such as canned goods, pasta, and peanut butter, that they could donate on the way out. A grand total of 4,600 lbs. of food was collected, which will provide more than 3,800 meals for their neighbors in need! InterWest Moving delivered all of the donations to the Idaho Falls Community Food Bank.
InterWest Moving & Storage has now organized 3 food drives over the past year. Last October, they organized a Fill-A-Truck food drive at Broulim’s and collected 2,340 lbs. of food. And earlier this year, they held a food drive competition with their branch in Bozeman, MT to see which team could collect the most food!
More than 210,000 people in Idaho are facing hunger every day, including 1 in 7 children. Thank you to everyone at InterWest Moving & Storage for your commitment to our cause!
