Los Angeles, CA, July 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, announced today that their seventh annual “Let’s Send Hunger Packing” summer food drive raised food and monetary donations to provide 33,924 meals to feed hungry children in Los Angeles County. Over seven years, the drive has raised a total of approximately 134,124 meals!

 

"This year's donation from NorthStar Moving Company comes at a critical time for food-insecure families with children who struggle to fill the summer meal gap when school meals are not available," President and CEO of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank Michael Flood.

 

One out of four children in Los Angeles County are at risk of going to bed hungry. Families must make choices each month between paying for food and utilities, transportation, housing or medicine and medical care. The many faces of hunger in the LA community include the most vulnerable such as children and seniors.

 

“I am so proud of and inspired by our team and the community. We’ve raised a total of more than 134,000 meals over the seven years of our Let’s Send Hunger Packing food drive; it is a huge milestone,” said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. “We had a fantastic group of individuals and organizations support us this year including Groundwork Coffee. Groundwork Coffee partnered with us last year and increased their support this year by opening the doors of their Los Angeles area cafes as food donation locations. We are so grateful for their support and to everyone who helped make a difference in the lives of hungry children throughout the LA region. Please remember, this is something all of us can do to make a difference in a hungry child’s life; just donate to your local food bank, it’s as easy as a click of a button.”
