RED BANK, NJ – Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization, and Altair Global, the only global mobility experience management company, today announced that they have renewed a partnership that will 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 16.3 million pounds of food – providing nearly 13.5 million meals – to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.
As partners, Altair Global has supported Move For Hunger’s programs and integrated Move For Hunger’s model into their relocation policies.
“More than 40 million Americans face hunger every day, but we’re wasting 40% of our food,” explains Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. “Our partnership with Altair Global allows us to address both problems at scale. Since 2012, Altair’s supplier network has collected more than 1.3 million lbs. of food, which is enough to provide more than 1 million meals. We are proud of what we have already accomplished together, and I feel the best is yet to come.”
"Partnering with Move For Hunger speaks to two beliefs that are at the core of Altair Global’s mentality: dedication to helping the community, and continuously striving to be a sustainable organization,” said Chad Sterling, chief executive officer at Altair Global. “We’re excited to continue our partnership with Move For Hunger into 2020 and are looking forward to how much we can accomplish together in this next year.”
