BOSTON, MASS., May 27, 2015 /3BL Media/ – Two Men and a Truck®, the fastest-growing franchised moving company in the country, has joined with CBS EcoMedia through its WellnessAd program to support women’s shelter Rosie’s Place’s food programs by providing more than 2,600 meals over a month-long period.

Rosie’s Place’s Dining Room program serves more than 100,000 nutritionally balanced meals a year to women and children in need. Poor and homeless women can come to Rosie’s Place 365 days a year for meals that include fresh fruits and vegetables and are low in sodium and fat.

To celebrate this partnership, Two Men and a Truck employee volunteers will serve lunch today to Rosie’s Place guests at their 889 Harrison Avenue location in Boston. Hosts for the event will include Brian and Nicole Stern, owners of Two Men and a Truck, Boston.

“Two Men and a Truck is excited for a long-lasting relationship with Rosie’s Place,” said Brian Stern. “It is important for us to give back to the communities that support us, and we pride ourselves on our involvement with local charities and nonprofits.”

“No mother should ever have to sacrifice nutritious food for her family,” said Paul Polizzotto, President and Founder, CBS EcoMedia. “We are privileged to collaborate with Two Men and a Truck to help alleviate hunger and ensure that women and children in need have access to healthy and balanced meals every day.”

“The Dining Room is the heart of Rosie’s Place – to our guests, it is not just a place to receive a nutritious meal, but a place to rest, to seek respite from the streets, or to make and visit friends,” said Sue Marsh, Executive Director, Rosie’s Place. “We are grateful to Two Men and a Truck and EcoMedia for providing much-needed support for this vital service.”

Rosie’s Place was founded in 1974 as the first women’s shelter in the United States. Today, Rosie’s Place not only provides meals and shelter but also provides direction for 12,000 women a year through wide-ranging support, housing and education services.
