Move for Hunger to Benefit St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry

Food collection at Fitness 19 in Lake Zurich.

Move For Hunger, a nationwide hunger relief organization, has partnered with the Koldon Moving & Storage for the first ever Food Drive to benefit the St. Vincent De Paul Food Pantry of Lake Zurich.

From Sept. 14 through Sept. 30, food collection boxes will be conveniently located at two Fitness 19 locations:

 

  • 831 East Belvidere Road, Grayslake, IL and 291 South Rand Road, Lake Zurich

 

Members and non-members are asked to come together to donate unopened, non-perishable food items throughout the entire month of September. Non-members who donate will receive a free 7-day

 

Koldon Moving and Storage has generously donated all of the collection boxes and will also deliver the donations directly to the food pantry following the completion of the event.

 

“Over 1.8 million people in Illinois live on incomes that put them at risk of hunger,” says Move For Hunger’s executive director, Adam Lowy. “This is a great way to bring the community together for a good cause.”

 

This September Food Drive is brought to you by Move For Hunger, a non-profit organization that works with relocation companies to collect unopened food items from those who are moving and deliver it to local food banks across the country. 

Move For Hunger is a non-profit organization that works with relocation companies across the country to pick up unwanted, unopened food from those who are moving and deliver it to local food banks across the country. To date, Move For Hunger is working with over 150 movers in 35 states and has collected nearly 700,000 pounds of food. With the support of its partners, Move For Hunger is turning the average food drive into one of the nation’s largest, year-round service programs.
