Motto Franchising LLC is on a mission to end hunger in America, one bag of food at a time. The franchisor of Motto Mortgage
has announced a program that aims to do just that, “Mission Against Hunger.”
“Mission Against Hunger is about helping and feeding our neighbors,” said Motto Franchising President Ward Morrison. “It’s a distressing fact that, according to Hunger Free Colorado, more than one in seven Americans struggle with hunger, and one in six children worry about how they’ll get their next meal. And we want to help do something about it.”
Motto Mortgage Loan Originators will provide their homebuying clients with reusable bags to fill with nonperishable food items. Instead of throwing food out during a move, the buyers have an easy way to clean out their pantries or cupboards and help feed someone at the same time. The filled bags are delivered to local food banks, schools and other charitable organizations who serve hungry people in need.
“Too much perfectly good food ends up in the landfill. And every bag filled is another opportunity for someone to have a good meal,” said Morrison. “In addition to making bags available to new homeowners, Motto Mortgage brokerages will promote the effort, get people thinking differently about food they don’t want and even host food drives in their communities. Mission Against Hunger starts with the donation bags, but it actually goes much further than that.”
