THE NEED HAS NEVER BEEN GREATER
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating economic impact and drastically increased the need for emergency food assistance nationwide. More than 37 million Americans were food insecure before the pandemic, and Feeding America estimates that the number could increase by 17 million in 2020. Communities that were already struggling will be hit the hardest. Counties with the highest rates of food insecurity before the pandemic, which are overrepresented by counties with a majority Black population, will also see the highest rates of food insecurity this year.
Move For Hunger's network of 1,000+ moving companies is in a unique position to help food banks all across the country during these unprecedented times. Food banks need trucks to deliver supplies to their warehouses and distribution centers. With a fleet of trucks, experienced drivers, and crews capable of doing the heavy lifting, our network can provide reliable transportation assistance and free up resources for the food banks to use elsewhere. Our team is working every day to connect moving companies that want to help with the food banks who so desperately need it.
