RED BANK, N.J., April 1, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — SIRVA, a worldwide relocation and moving services company based out of Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announced today a partnership that will help provide much-needed assistance to food banks across the United States.
As a partner, SIRVA will support Move For Hunger’s food rescue and hunger relief programs. To date, Move For Hunger’s network of relocation professionals and multi-family properties has collected and delivered more than 22 million pounds of food – providing over 18 million meals – to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.
“We are excited to renew our partnership with SIRVA, as they play an influential role in helping us reach our goal of decreasing food insecurity nationwide,” says Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. “With their resources and ours, we are able to continue to work to reach our goal of decreasing hunger throughout America.”
Move For Hunger and SIRVA have been partners since 2017 and with their financial commitments, they’ve helped provide over 200,000 meals to those in need. SIRVA prides itself on committing to being part of the solution and is the parent company for North American Van Lines and Allied Van Lines, who are also partners of Move For Hunger.
“For many years, SIRVA and its agents and drivers from Allied Van Lines and North American Van Lines have supported the Move for Hunger mission to reduce food waste and fight hunger,” said Brian Risley, SIRVA’s SVP for Moving Services. “During the global pandemic, as food insecurity has increased, the need for this service has never been greater. SIRVA is proud to continue our partnership with Move for Hunger in 2021 and sends our appreciation and encouragement to the Move For Hunger staff, to our networks, and to our industry. SIRVA is very pleased to continue to advance this common-sense and sustainable means of providing emergency food assistance to those in need.”
Over the past 12 months, the need for food has only increased. Due to the pandemic, 5 million more people in the United States are considered food insecure with the total number rising from 37 million to 42 according to a recent report. Through the support of partners like SIRVA, Move For Hunger can continue to feed and empower more to fight for the families and vulnerable communities who are most in need of food assistance.
