Graebel Companies Named Hunger Fighting Hero after moving 20,000 miles to provide 65,000 meals to communities in need

November 14, 2022

In 2022, Move For Hunger created a new award to showcase our hunger fighting heroes in a new light! The Hunger Fighting Champion Award is a quarterly award given to a Move For Hunger partner who has gone above and beyond in the fight against hunger.

For the third quarter of 2022, Move For Hunger awarded for their long-standing commitment to the fight against food insecurity through their dedicated partnership with Move For Hunger!

Graebel joined Move For Hunger as a partner in 2016 and continues to be an active partner by hosting their second month-long Move 2 FightGraebel Move 2 Fight Hunger Challenge (Mountain) Hunger Challenge for their employees during Hunger Action Month. There were more than 430 Graebel employees across 14 countries who moved 20,000 miles through exercise, which assisted in providing 65,000 meals to food banks and those facing hunger.

The virtual activity challenge encourages participants to do any activity they enjoyed - like dancing, running, walking their dog, gardening, knitting, or even cooking. The activities are then translated into meals for food insecure communities. The Move 2 Fight Hunger Challenge is a great way for companies to enable their employees and give back to their communities, especially the 11 million children that face hunger every day.
