Fifty million Americans struggle to find their next meal every day. Hunger isn't limited to a certain demographic or geographic region – it's a problem everywhere. That's why Atlas Van Lines is proud to be an Epic Partner of Move For Hunger, a non-profit organization that fights nationwide hunger by gathering non-perishable food items from household moves and hosts collections to deliver to local communities' food banks. As part of the partnership, Atlas and more than 100 of our agents across 35 states help build awareness on nationwide hunger and encourage customers to donate unused food.
To kick off our sponsorship with Move For Hunger, Atlas headquarters held a local food drive, which resulted in 3,050 pounds of food and more than $850 donated to Tri-State Food Bank located in Evansville, Indiana. Participating Atlas agents also hold various food drives and other events to support the cause throughout their local regions.
Most recently, we were named the largest van line supporter of Move For Hunger. To date, Atlas and our network of agents have contributed more than 100,000 pounds of non-perishable food to local food banks across the United States.
