(May 1, 2015) — The hunger relief nonprofit, Move For Hunger, has announced that they will be teaming up with A-1 Moving & Storage, an agent for Atlas Van Lines, to give their trucks a charitable voice. On May 1, A-1 Moving & Storage wrapped a 16-foot straight truck to encourage the community to donate their food when they move. As a proud partner of Move For Hunger, A-1 Moving & Storage offers to pick up any unopened, non-perishable food items from its customers year round to distribute to local food banks in need. To date, they have delivered over 1,000 lbs of food to local food banks - providing over 800 meals to individuals in need.
There are over 200,000 people in the Palm Beach area struggling with hunger. 30% in need are children. "This new truck symbolizes the importance of this growing issue and serves as a simple call to action to those who'd like to make their moving experience more socially responsible," says Adam Lowy, Executive Director of Move For Hunger.
"I learned about Move For Hunger three years ago and became passionate about closing the gap on hunger in Palm Beach," says Andy Newitt, Director of Business Development at A-1 Moving & Storage. "We joined immediately, and the A-1 team has worked at making food collection from our customers a success. We will continue to support this great organization and our truck wrap is just another way to bring the issue of hunger to the forefront of people's minds."
