PHOENIX, Ariz., Mar 11, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Move For Hunger announced today that registration is now open for the first annual Arizona Truck Pull. 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 hosted by Beltmann Relocation Group and the Arizona Relocation Alliance at Uncle Bear's Brewery in Gilbert on Saturday, April 13 from 2 - 6 p.m.
Registration is $200 per team and can be completed at http://AZTruckPull.com. Proceeds from the event will benefit Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization that mobilizes the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger.
"In previous years, the employees of Beltmann did most of the heavy lifting to get money and food together to make a difference, which we loved," says Beltmann Phoenix's General Manager, Steve Rinaldo. "However, the inaugural truck pull contest is a fun and engaging way to pull in community support this year, and hopefully beyond."
People tend to throw a lot of "stuff" away when they move, including perfectly good food. As a member of Move For Hunger's national network of relocation professionals, Beltmann Relocation Group 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 1 million people in Arizona, including 1 in 5 children, are food insecure - meaning they lack 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. Since joining Move For Hunger in 2012, Beltmann Relocation Group has delivered more than 41,000 lbs. of food to the Hope For Hunger Food Bank, which is enough to provide 34,700 meals.
