Leading Van Line is Committed to Reducing Food Waste and Fighting Hunger Atlas Canada and Move For Hunger Announce Collaborative Effort to Help Feed Families In Need Nationwide
Oakville, ON. June 8th, 2018
Atlas Canada, whose agents across every province and territory provide local, long distance, international, cross border and specialized moving services, has renewed its partnership with Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization that mobilizes the relocation industry to fight hunger and reduce food waste, to provide much-needed assistance to food banks across Canada.
People tend to throw a lot of things away when they move, including perfectly good food. As proud partners of Move For Hunger, 33 of Atlas Canada’s partner agents are collecting non-perishable food from their customers and delivering it to local food banks.
“Atlas Canada agents have already delivered more than 16,600 lbs. of food to food banks and pantries in the communities they serve,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. “One in 8 households in Canada are food insecure. We’re grateful that Atlas Canada recognized the urgency of the problem and has made a commitment to helping their neighbors in need.”
“This partnership is a great fit for Atlas as we believe in serving the communities we live and work in,” said Barry Schellenberg, President of Atlas Canada. “Ending hunger in this country is something we are proud to be part of. Working as a team, our customers, Atlas agents, and Move For Hunger help food banks across Canada feed people in need.”
Through the generous support of partners like Atlas Canada, Move For Hunger can continue to help the more than 4 million Canadians who are struggling to find their next meal. For more information about Move For Hunger and how you can make a difference please visit www.MoveForHunger.org.
