(RED BANK, N.J.) — NEWS: National Van Lines, an interstate van line specializing in full-service moving, packing, and storage services for residential and commercial long distance customers, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announce 8th year of partnership to reduce food waste and fight hunger nationwide.
National Van Lines joined the Move For Hunger network in 2014. Since joining, they have added 25 National Van Line agents from across the United States, who have since contributed more than 365,000 meals to food insecure communities nationwide. Their efforts in the fight against hunger are desperately needed since more than 42 million Americans face hunger every day.
“Partnering with Move For Hunger was an easy choice to make,” said Tim Helenthal, Chairman & CEO of National Van Lines, Inc. “Move For Hunger serves a vital need in communities all over the country, and it’s so easy for our agents to get involved with this amazing organization. We have a moral obligation to help those in need. For the wealthiest country in the world to have one in six children be food insecure is shameful. I believe we have an earthly mission to take care of each other; making sure everyone has enough to eat is the best place to start.”
Move For Hunger was founded in 2009 by Adam Lowy, and over the course of 11 years has provided more than 26 million pounds of food, equalling over 22 million meals, to food pantries and banks across the United States. Move For Hunger’s network of more than 1,000 moving companies volunteer to collect unopened, non-perishable food and deliver it to their local food banks.
“Partnering with National Van Lines is vital to the mission of Move For Hunger,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. “Having partners who are passionate about our mission is something we’ll never take for granted.”
