April 2021 Great northAmerican® Food Drive – Powered by northAmerican Agents and Move for Hunger

northAmerican agents and their teams team up with Move For Hunger on the Great North American Food Drive



On Monday, April 5, the northAmerican® Van Lines agent network and Move For Hunger kicked off it’s first Great northAmerican Food Drive. April 5 – 11, northAmerican agents in the U.S. and Canada will be collecting non-perishable food items in their community and delivering those donations to local food banks on April 12.

Move For Hunger and northAmerican Van Lines have been partners since 2013. During that time, 76 northAmerican agents have combined to collect over 500,000 lbs of food (over 400,000 meals) and transport it to those in need at a local food bank.

“We are thrilled to partner with northAmerican Van Lines on this project,” says Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. They’ve been an amazing supporter of ours for many years and have answered the call, literally, time and time again whenever there was food that needed rescuing.”

This nationwide initiative could not come at a more important time. Because of the pandemic, 17 million more people are struggling to find their next meal. In total, over 54 million Americans, including 1 in 4 kids, are considered food insecure. In Canada, food banks have experienced a 76% increase in new clients, and 1 in 3 children are going hungry*.

“The northAmerican agent family has been supporting the communities where they live and work for over 86 years,” says Kevin Murphy, Vice President and General Manager, North American Van Lines, Inc. “As essential employees throughout the pandemic, northAmerican agents have witnessed first-hand the impact of COVID-19 on their communities and were ready to help. We are proud to have such dedicated and community-focused agents in our network and are honored to partner with an outstanding organization like Move For Hunger.”
