LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - March 27, 2017) - NorthStar Moving® Company, the leading eco-luxury mover in California, partnered with Move for Hunger to ensure food at this year's Los Angeles Marathon was not wasted. NorthStar Moving gathered 4,860 pounds of leftover food from the marathon and delivered them to a local food bank to help feed hungry neighbors in the greater Los Angeles community.
On March 19th the 2017 Los Angeles Marathon gathered over 24,000 runners, forming the fourth largest marathon in the U.S. and the tenth largest worldwide. "Large events like the Los Angeles Marathon provide an opportunity to rescue thousands of meals. NorthStar Moving's partnership allowed us to make sure any unused food and beverages at the finish line were delivered to those who need them most," said Adam Lowy, Move For Hunger's Executive Director.
"We watch the LA Marathon every year and it gives us great pleasure to be involved in a way that gives back to our community," said NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm. "The fight to end hunger is a marathon, a race that needs to be won. Turning leftover food from this year's marathon into food that will be on the tables of those in need, is an effort that makes a lot sense, a step in the right direction. We are always seeking out other events like this that we can do the same for. There should be no food wasted. Every step in the race to end hunger counts."
NorthStar Moving has been working with Move for Hunger since 2010. Through food drives, events and other efforts, NorthStar Moving has collected over 21,000 pounds of food, enough for 17,500 meals for those in their community.
