2020 has been impactful for all the right and wrong reasons. Like all of us, we wish this pandemic has never happened, but one of the silver linings is that it has put a spotlight on the hunger crisis in America which in turn has helped lead to a record year of food distribution. All-time, Move For Hunger has transported over 20 million pounds of food over the past 11 years, and 25% of that has come within the past 12 months.
This wouldn’t have been possible without incredible partners like Chadwell Supply. Chadwell Supply specializes in the multi-family industry providing anything from appliances, doors, HVAC equipment, lighting, and almost anything else needed to build a community. This past year they become a partner of Move For Hunger and through their support, we’ve been able to provide 60,000 meals to those in need.
Chadwell Supply is proud of the partnership launched this past year with Move For Hunger,” said Roy Price, partner of Chadwell Supply. “We are excited to join their mission and to support this unique opportunity for our multi-family customers."
The need has almost never been greater than this past year and it continues into 2021. It’s estimated that food banks are receiving 60% higher demand than in previous years, and 40% of those people are visiting for the first time. Roughly 1 in 8 people in Tampa Bay, home of Chadwell Supply, is food insecure.
With their continued support, we hope to continue to make strides in the Tampa Bay community as well as the United States overall to help those in need. Want to become a partner? Go to our join page to learn more.
