TAMPA, FL, May 25, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- College H.U.N.K.S. Hauling Junk & Moving®, an industry leader in stress-free solutions for moving and junk-hauling needs, is thrilled to announce it has donated –wait for it—TWO MILLION MEALS to U.S. Hunger, a national nonprofit committed to forging a path towards a hunger-free world through highlighting hunger issues, providing meals to those in need and solving the root causes of food insecurity.
"We genuinely care about our customers and the communities we serve, which is why community support is and will always be one of the core tenets of our brand," said Nick Friedman, Co-Founder, and Visionary of College HUNKS.
"Every one of our franchise locations is committed to doing their part in assembling and packaging healthy meals that are distributed far and wide to children (as well as veterans and the elderly) who don't know where or when their next meal is coming," continued Friedman. "We can change this; we are changing this!"
For every moving or junk removal service completed, College HUNKS works with U.S. Hunger to provide two nutritious meals. Since 2017, College HUNKS has provided a staggering two million meals to children in need – an especially momentous milestone on the heels of the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in shutdowns and unemployment, amplifying food scarcity issues for many families across the country.
"With more than three years of providing meals for families in need, we are honored to celebrate yet another huge milestone with College HUNKS," said Rick Whitted, Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Hunger. "Amid this pandemic, College HUNKS prioritized the desire to give back to our communities and help families in need get through some of their most challenging times. We are incredibly grateful for College HUNKS efforts, and we look forward to building a hunger-free world together."
In addition to meal donations, College HUNKS uses its fleet of nationwide trucks to transport and deliver food supplies, tables, and equipment to many U.S. Hunger projects taking place nationwide.
