NorthStar Moving Rescues 2,300 LBS. of Food From the LA Marathon

April 7, 2020

Our friends from North Star Moving Company once again volunteered to rescue all of the unused food/beverages from the Los Angeles Marathon. This year's event took place on March 8, and the crew from North Star Moving recovered 2,300 pounds of energy bars, bagels, bananas and delivered it all to the Valley Food Bank.

“Each year, we are pleased to volunteer our team to be of service in such meaningful work; rescuing thousands of pounds of food from the finish line and delivering it to the Valley Food Bank for those that really need it,” said North Star Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. 

North Star Moving has rescued nearly 17,500 lbs. of food/beverages from the race over the last four years and, since joining the Move For Hunger network in 2010, has delivered more than 75,000 lbs. of food -- enough to provide more than 62,000 meals -- to food banks in California.

Thank you to Laura and the entire crew at North Star Moving for your commitment to fighting hunger and reducing food waste in the Golden State!
