Move for Hunger

Move for Hunger was started by a man whose family worked in the moving business his whole life. He watched as time after time people would throw out the food in their pantries because they didn’t want to deal with the hassle of moving it. He then came up with the idea to save this food and drop it off at a food bank, which makes the mover’s life easier and fills the empty food banks.

Did you know?Over 17 million children face a greater risk of hunger during summer because relief programs are difficult to access and are underfunded?

Did you know? May kicked off the “moving season” with over half of all yearly moves taking place in the summer and fall months… that’s nearly 40 million Americans.

Now what if we told you there’s a way for people that are moving to help combat the millions of hungry Americans?

Well, there is! Move for Hunger was started by a man whose family worked in the moving business his whole life. He watched as time after time people would throw out the food in their pantries because they didn’t want to deal with the hassle of moving it. He then came up with the idea to save this food and drop it off at a food bank, which makes the mover’s life easier and fills the empty food banks.

It’s a no-brainer, before you toss your unwanted food:

1) Check the Move for Hunger website. -Input your zip code, and a map appears with local movers who participate. Find one nearby and make the call.

2) Set aside any non-perishable food

3) The movers pack it up on THEIR OWN TIME and bring it to the food bank

4) The food bank sorts the donations and delivers them to families in need
