HOLMDEL, N.J., Sept. 8, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Move For Hunger announced today that registration is still open for the first-ever Bell Works Truck Pull, presented by WorkWave. The event, in which teams of 5-10 will compete to see who can pull a moving truck 100 feet in the fastest time, will be held at Bell Works (101 Crawfords Corner Road, Holmdel, NJ, 07733) on Thursday, September 12, 2019 from 3:45 – 7:45 p.m.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way for the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger.
“We are excited to support Move For Hunger in a way that is not only fun for all, but also helps to get the community involved in raising awareness for such an important cause,” said Marne Martin, CEO of WorkWave. “At WorkWave, we are passionate about doing the right thing and supporting the communities around us, and this is a great way to come together and make a difference.”
Lowy’s Moving Service will provide one of their trucks for the event. As a member of Move For Hunger’s national network of relocation professionals, Lowy’s Moving Service offers their customers an opportunity to donate unopened, non-perishable food during the moving process and volunteers to deliver the donations to the local food bank, free of charge.
As one of the founding members of Move For Hunger, Lowy’s Moving Service has delivered nearly 490,000 lbs. of food – the equivalent of 408,000 meals – to Fulfill, Lunch Break, and other food pantries in Monmouth and Ocean Counties since 2009.
Nearly 866,000 people in New Jersey, including 1 in 8 children, do not have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Meanwhile, 40% of all the food produced in the United States each year is wasted. The funds raised at the Bell Works Truck Pull will support Move For Hunger’s hunger relief and food recovery programs, both in New Jersey and nationwide.
