Each month, Move For Hunger awards and highlights our moving companies that have gone above and beyond with their work to fight against hunger! Over the past year, Move For Hunger has taken leaps in reducing global food waste by collaborating directly with farms to transport fresh foods that otherwise may have been wasted, to food banks to be used and distributed to families in need.
For the month of August, we are proud to congratulate M. Dyer Global as our Mover of the Month for August! Throughout this summer, M. Dyer Global has collected nearly 800 lbs of food while helping families move out of their homes - that’s over 665 meals.
When Move for Hunger first began in 2009, this was the exact concept it was built on by donating food when people move, everyone could fight hunger, even one move at a time. 36 million people moved in 2021. If everyone donated 1 can, we could feed 30 million people.
Over the years, Move For Hunger has been able to expand its operations to include large-scale food rescue, cold storage installation, and multifamily home donations. However, it would have been impossible to get to this point without the work of our partners, like M. Dyer Global, assisting in making that goal a reality.
Based in Hawaii, M. Dyer Global hopes to make an impact in helping combat food insecurity in their community. “It was saddening to see so many iconic restaurants and businesses close down during the pandemic and luckily, like the rest of us in the moving industry, we're considered an essential business that we felt blessed to be able to keep our doors open. With this in mind, we felt the importance of giving back to our community in the most essential way possible; with food. Our culture celebrates life around food, and we'd like to give back where we can,” said Natassha Pablo, HR & Communications Manager.
With over 136,000 Hawaiians food secure, including 1 in 6 children, we appreciate all of the amazing work being done by M. Dyer Global for their community.
Since partnering with us in 2013, M. Dyer Global has transported over 5,000 lbs - equivalent to about 4,400 meals. “M. Dyer Global has been in business for over 50 years, and even though our partnership started in 2013, we have always felt that our involvement in the community is important for our employees, our business, and for the people of Hawaii,” Pablo said. “We're looking forward to working with the Hawaii Food Bank, and are excited to build opportunities in the future that will make an impact on Hawaii's way of life.”
