(RED BANK, N.J.) — NEWS: Moving Ahead Services, an independent mover that has 6 locations nationwide, 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, Moving Ahead Services 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 21 million pounds of food – providing over 17 million meals – to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.
“As a result of the pandemic, more than 54 million Americans are unsure of where or when they will find their next meal, yet an estimated 40% of all food grown, processed, and transported in the United States is wasted,” explains Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. “Moving Ahead Services understands the need is more critical than ever and is committed to helping us provide meals to those struggling to put food on the table.”
Move For Hunger and Moving Ahead Services have been partners since 2014. Together, their offices have collected 84,819 pounds, enough to feed 70,682 people. In 2019, Moving Ahead Services organized and picked up leftover food from the Cleveland marathon, where they transported 5,355 pounds of food, providing 4,462 meals to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.
“Partnering with Move For Hunger hits on two fundamental core values at Moving Ahead Services: Giving back to our community, and providing a service that is unrivaled. We are thrilled to continue our partnership and excited to see what we can accomplish together in 2021,” says President of Moving Ahead Services, Jeff Collins.
Through the support of partners like Moving Ahead Services, Move For Hunger can continue to feed and empower more to fight for the families, children, seniors, and vulnerable communities who are most in need of food assistance.
