July 12, 2018 | 3:46pm

Here at Move For Hunger, we are continuously blown away by the challenges our movers undertake to fight hunger in their communities.  Our friends at Brandon Moving & Storage, a Bekins agent are no exception: they recently hosted back to back Fill-A-Truck food drives, which were a huge success!

More than 1,160 lbs. of non-perishable food were collected at the Walmart Super Center in Clinton on Saturday, July 7 and delivered to the Choctaw Food Bank. Oe day later, Brandon Moving & Storage filled their moving trucks with more than 1,400. lbs of non-perishable food items at the 10 Box Cost Plus in Conway. These donations were brought to the Community Action Program for Central Arkansas (CAPCA).

In one weekend, Brandon Moving & Storage collected more than 2,500 lbs. of food - enough to provide 2,100 meals to those in need! With more than 500,000 people, including 1 in 4 children, in Arkansas struggling with food insecurity, the company’s efforts are sure to have a major impact on the local community!

This year alone, Brandon Moving & Storage has hosted a total of five food drives to benefit the communities of Van Buren and Faulkner counties, collecting more than 7,400 lbs. of food!
