Our friends at the New England Relocation Association (NERA) held a Peanut Butter and Jelly Food Drive during their meeting on June 6. Several members of the Move For Hunger network also belong to NERA, which provides a forum for relocation professionals to expand their knowledge about the industry. They are also passionate about giving back to the communities they serve!
A total of 140 lbs. of peanut butter and jelly was collected during the meeting, which should provide more than 100 meals for their neighbors in need! Peanut butter and jelly are always among the most highly-requested items by food banks, because peanut butter is high in protein and both items typically have a long shelf life. NERA also donated $1,000 to Move For Hunger to help support our programs!
Mike DeLello of Humboldt Storage & Moving attended the meeting and volunteered to deliver the donations to the Canton Food Pantry.
More than 616,000 in Massachusetts are food insecure, including 1 in 9 children.
Thank you to NERA and Humboldt Storage & Moving for working together to make a difference! We can help you hold your own food drive!
