SAN DIEGO, Calif. /California Newswire/ — Move For Hunger announced today that registration is open for its first-ever San Diego Truck Pull fundraiser. The event, in which teams of 5-10 will compete to see who can pull an eight ton truck 100 feet in the fastest time, will be held at AleSmith Brewing Company (9990 AleSmith Ct., San Diego, CA 92126) on Saturday, February 29 from Noon-3 p.m.

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.
Ace Relocation Systems, a national moving company headquartered in San Diego, will provide one of their trucks for the event. Ace Relocation and Dewitt Move Worldwide are among the more than 1,000 moving companies that have joined Move For Hunger’s national network of relocation professionals. Ace Relocation Systems & Dewitt Move Worldwide encourage their customers to donate unopened, non-perishable food during the moving process and then volunteers to deliver the donations to the local food bank, free of charge.
This event will provide Move For Hunger with the resources it needs to continue to expand its network, organize food drives, and to coordinate food rescues.
“More than 4 million people in California are facing hunger every day, including 1 in 6 children,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director/Founder of Move For Hunger. “Meanwhile, we are wasting 40% of the food in the United States each year. The San Diego Truck Pull is going to be a fun event that will raise awareness about these issues, while also providing Move For Hunger with the support we need to collect 4 million pounds of food this year.”
“We have a long-standing tradition of helping those in need in the San Diego community,” said Jeremy Day, General Manager, Ace Relocation Systems. “This event fits right in with that. We are thrilled to participate.”
“It’s all about feeding the hungry,” said Jeff Nadeau, General Manager, Dewitt Move Worldwide.
Since 2009, Move For Hunger has delivered more than 16.3 million pounds of food – that’s the equivalent of 13.6 million meals – to food banks all across the United States and Canada. The funds raised at the San Diego Truck Pull will support Move For Hunger’s hunger relief and food rescue programs, both in California and nationwide.
