River Valley Realty of Lambertville, N.J., and Yardley, P.A., has joined Move For Hunger to fight hunger in their community and spread awareness of the growing need in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and across the United States by hosting a month-long food drive in their offices.
In commemoration of “Hunger Action Month,” River Valley will be collecting non-perishable food items from the public at its Lambertville office at 45 North Main Street beginning Sept. 8.
Food insecurity affects more than 71,000 people in Bucks and Hunterdon Counties, including nearly one in five children.
“We are thrilled to have River Valley Realty working with us to fight hunger,” said Max Lowy, Director of Move For Hunger’s Real Estate Program. “Their enthusiastic support helps us serve the local community and deliver food to those who need it most.”
“When I realized how many of our neighbors were going hungry, I knew we had to do something,” explained Kim Ward Bacso, owner of River Valley Realty. “Move For Hunger gave us the opportunity to help our community in a meaningful way.”
As a partner of Move For Hunger, River Valley Realty agents will provide hunger awareness materials to their clients, informing them of hunger in their community, and urging them to donate unwanted non-perishable food items during their moving process, rather than throw them out. Community members can also drop-off non-perishable food items year-round at the River Valley Realty offices.
