Thanks to our hardworking partners and network, 2022 was the most impactful year yet for Move For Hunger! We transported and delivered over 5.5 MILLION pounds of donations to food banks and pantries across the United States - that's over 4.6 MILLION meals to food insecure communities!

It’s through the efforts of our team and network of partners, movers, and multifamily organizations that we had such a big impact. We held nearly 1,000 food drives, forged new partnerships, nearly tripled our impact with our Fresh Food Program thanks to our dedicated movers, and brought back our favorite in-person events. 

While we’re unbelievably thankful for each organization and partner that have helped us in the fight against hunger, here are the ones that really stood out from the crowd.

Our 2022 Award Winners are:
