North American Van Lines renewed their partnership with Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization that mobilizes the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger. As proud partners of Move For Hunger, 66 northAmerican agents across the United States and Canada have volunteered to collect non-perishable food items from people who are moving and deliver it to their local food pantries. Since the beginning, northAmerican agents have delivered more than 368,000 pounds of food – providing more than 300,000meals to their neighbors in need.
"Helping fight hunger in America is an incredible opportunity for us. We are excited about working with Move For Hunger and making a difference in millions of people's lives in the process." - Andy Kroll, Vice President and General Manager of North American Van Lines.
"More than 41 million Americans are food insecure, including 1 in 6 children. Meanwhile, we are wasting 40% of the food we produce every year," explains Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "North American Van Lines recognizes the urgency of the problem and has committed to taking action. We are proud to call them our partners."
Through the generous support of northAmerican®, Move For Hunger can continue to help the more than 41 million Americans struggling to find their next meal. For more information about Move For Hunger and how you can make a difference please visit www.MoveForHunger.org.
