Move For Hunger and Graebel Companies today announced that they have renewed a partnership to reduce food waste and fight hunger nationwide.
People throw away a lot of things when they move, including perfectly good food. Move For Hunger’s network of more than 1,000 moving companies, more than 1,500 multi-family apartment communities, and many of the world’s leading relocation management companies, volunteers to collect this unopened, non-perishable food and delivers it to their local food banks. To date, the Move For Hunger network has collected and delivered more than 17 million pounds of food – providing nearly 14 million meals – to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.
As partners, Graebel has supported Move For Hunger’s programs and integrated Move For Hunger’s model into their relocation policies.
“More than 40 million Americans are food insecure, including 1 in 6 children. Meanwhile, we are wasting 40% of the food we produce every year,” explains Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. “We are thrilled to that Graebel, one of the leaders in the relocation industry, remains committed to helping us solve both of these problems, especially during these difficult times.”
“We are pleased and proud to continue our partnership with Move For Hunger," said Graebel's Senior Vice President, Ben Ivory. "Our communities need our support, now more than ever."
