Moving with Atlas can make a difference
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 the only van line that is 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 the United States and Canada help build awareness of hunger and encourage customers to donate unused food.
To date, Atlas Van Lines and its network of agents have donated over 430,000 pounds of food, or enough for 360,000 meals.
Just over a pound of food is enough for one meal for those in need. To date, Atlas and our network of agents have contributed more than 430,000 pounds of food to local food banks across the U.S. and Canada. Check out our infographic for more interesting information.
