Red Bank, NJ, Mar. 24, 2020 – Move For Hunger and IOR Global Services, a leading provider of global mobility and talent development solutions designed to advance employee effectiveness across cultures, have announced a new partnership to reduce food waste and fight hunger.
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 16.6 million pounds of food – providing more than 13.8 million meals – to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.
As partners, IOR will support Move For Hunger’s food rescue programs and will encourage the clients, associations, and property management companies they work with to integrate the Move For Hunger model into their relocation policies.
“More than 40 million Americans are facing hunger, but we are wasting 40% of the food in the United States every year,” said Adam Lowy, Move For Hunger’s Executive Director/Founder. “With IOR’s support, we can reach more people, rescue more food, and put more meals on the table for people who are struggling to make ends meet.”
“IOR’s employees are passionate about giving back. This partnership with Move for Hunger provides outstanding opportunities for our team to donate food and raise funds that will make a significant difference in people’s lives,” said Rob Burns, IOR’s Chief Executive Officer.
Move For Hunger is a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger. We have mobilized the leaders of moving, relocation, and multi-family industries to provide their customers, clients, and residents with the opportunity to donate their food when they move. Members of Move For Hunger also organize community food drives, participate in awareness campaigns, and create employee engagement programs.
