Assurant Employees Take Part in ArCANtecture Competition

November 1, 2019

On October 23, we visited our partners from Assurant at their offices in Miami to hold our first-ever ArCANtecture competition!

AssurantArCantectureCanstruction2019 (33).jpgWe announced our partnership with Assurant, a global provider of housing and lifestyle solutions that support, protect and connect major consumer purchases, at the National Apartment Association's Apartmentalize Conference in June. Assurant has pledged to help us reduce food waste and fight hunger because they are a company that believes that, "supporting our communities through giving and volunteerism increases employee engagement and reinforces our commitment as a responsible corporate citizen."

Before the competition began, our Executive Director, Adam Lowy, and Director of Development, Margo Cianchetta, spoke to the Assurant staff about hunger and food waste in the United States. During the presentation, they also explained how Assurant and its employees could help Move For Hunger create sustainable solutions to both problems.

The ArCANtecture competition was a fun way to introduce Move For Hunger to Assurant's team and to build excitement about our partnership. Employees built houses using cans of food -- which were generously provided by our friends at Feeding South Florida -- and were judged based on their creativity, the amount of food they used, and the stability of their design. The winning team received medals and secured bragging rights for the rest of the year!

We believe that serving your community can and should be a joyful experience, and that's why we work with our partners to organize fun team-building events like this one. Thank you to the entire Assurant team for everything you're doing to support our hunger relief and food rescue programs. We look forward to working together for years to come!
