PORTLAND, Ore., Sep 06, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Move For Hunger and the Portland Relocation Council announced today that the first-ever Rose City Truck Pull, presented by Chipman Relocation & Logistics, will take place on Thursday, September 12 from 1 - 5 p.m. The event, in which teams of 5-10 will compete to see who can pull a moving truck 100 feet in the fastest time, will be held at Golden Valley Brewing Company (1520 NW Bethany Blvd., Beaverton, OR, 97006).
Proceeds from the event will benefit Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way for the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger.
Chipman Relocation & Logistics, a professional moving company based in Portland, will provide one of their trucks for the event. As a member of Move For Hunger's national network of relocation professionals, Chipman Relocation & Logistics provides their customers with the opportunity to donate unopened, non-perishable food during the moving process and volunteers to deliver the donations to the local food bank, free of charge.
More than 510,000 people in Oregon, including 1 in 6 children, do not have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Meanwhile, 40% of all the food produced in the United States each year is wasted. The funds raised at the Truck Pull will support Move For Hunger's hunger relief and food recovery programs in Oregon and nationwide.
