Slidell Moving and Storage, a family-owned and operated moving company in New Orleans, recently received a truck wrap from Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, to encourage residents to donate their food when they move.
Steven Fisk, President of Slidell Moving and Storage, has dedicated this truck wrap to his grandfather, Rob Rohr. “My grandad, Rob Rohr, worked at a local food pantry in Slidell. I listened to his satisfaction in passing out food to families in need and how much joy it brought to him. This truck is dedicated to him, and we do a food drive in his honor as well.”
“Times are harder than ever right now and the obstacles a family must overcome to survive are at an all-time high,” Fisk continued. “The Fisk Foundation was eager to join Move For Hunger to help kids and families secure meals daily by using Slidell Moving as a platform resource. The goal is endless on what we can do with this partnership, not only on a local level but across the world.”
Slidell Moving and Storage joined the Move For Hunger network in 2012 and has since proven its dedication to fighting hunger by transporting over 21,500 lbs of donations to food insecure communities in New Orleans. This provides over 18,000 meals to those in need.
“Slidell Moving & Storage joined Move For Hunger very early on, and have always had a commitment to their community,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. “With over 375,000 food insecure people living in the Greater New Orleans and Acadiana area, they have been a great partner over the years in helping us in the fight against hunger.”
Since its inception in 2009, Move For Hunger has provided over 27 million pounds of food, equalling nearly 23 million meals, to food pantries across the United States. Move For Hunger now has a network of over 1,100 moving companies, including many of the world’s leading relocation management companies, and more than 2,700 multifamily apartment communities, all helping to fight to end hunger by collecting food items and delivering them to local food banks in the United States and Canada.
