Move For Hunger News Room

Move For Hunger Newsroom - Profile and News Archive

By teaming up with relocation companies across the country, Move For Hunger is creating one of the nation’s largest year-round service programs. Our movers offer to pick up the unwanted, non-perishable food items from those who are moving and deliver it to their local food banks.

As you may be aware, many people throw out a good deal of “stuff” when they move. Unfortunately, a lot of this “stuff” is food that could be delivered to a family in need rather than thrown away. That’s where we come in.

Move For Hunger helps companies and individuals across the United States and Canada organize successful food drives. To date, they have collected more than 7 million pounds of food.

Move for Hunger is a 501(c)3 registered non-profit.
