The economic disruption caused by the coronavirus has forced millions of people to seek assistance from their local food banks & pantries. Feeding America estimates that the number of Americans who are facing food insecurity has increased by 46% during the pandemic.
Moving companies from across the country, like Unique Moving & Storage, have stepped up to help meet the demand. The Oxnard, CA moving company has been volunteering to transport fresh produce from local distributors to Food Share of Ventura County. Since May, they have delivered nearly 20,000 lbs. of melons, pineapples, cucumbers, and apples to the food bank - that's the the equivalent of 16,600 meals.
Thank you to Rodney Watson and everyone at Unique Moving & Storage for doing your part to help fight hunger during this crisis.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has left a massive economic impact and has drastically increased the need for emergency food assistance nationwide. Move For Hunger is actively searching for ways to meet the demand, but we're going to need your help.
