I am delighted to announce that 2023 was the most impactful year for Move For Hunger yet! We saw an overwhelming increase in donations, reaching an unprecedented 9.9 million pounds of food provided to food insecure communities across the U.S. and Canada.

Our dedicated team and network, through their relentless efforts, made the seemingly impossible, possible. They were instrumental in providing this substantial amount of food to food banks. In short, they made a tough job look easy.

The problem of food waste and insecurity is complex, but the figures speak for themselves. In a world where 38% of farmable land grows food that will never reach a plate, and where 1 in 5 children in the United States go to bed hungry, it's clear that we need to utilize our resources more effectively.

While the reality is stark, we are not disheartened. Instead, we are inspired to work harder and make even greater strides in the years to come. The past year has been about reconnection, forward-thinking, and setting the groundwork for our future initiatives.

With a renewed focus on delivering fresh food to communities that need it the most, we are optimistic about the future. In 2023, we nearly tripled the amount of fresh food recovered, a number we aim to grow significantly in 2024. Additionally, Move For Hunger is turning 15 this year, and we have some great things in store!

We are also looking forward to engaging more people in our mission. We encourage you to stay connected, share our posts, organize events, make donations, participate in activities, and share your ideas. Your support fuels our mission, and together, we can make a difference.

Here's to another year of serving those in need and making every pound count. Thank you for your continued support and commitment to Move For Hunger.

How Hunger and Poverty Affects Americans

In the United States, more than 44 million people, including 13 million children, are considered food insecure. But what exactly is food insecurity?

Food insecurity is defined as “a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life.” Food insecurity means not having reliable access to sufficient food for a healthy life. It's linked to, but not exclusive to, poverty, affecting diverse groups, including minorities, women, children, veterans, seniors, and the LGBTQ+ community.

Living in poverty can severely impact the quality of life for those living through it. If a family is struggling to make ends meet and there isn’t access to food, medicine, and other necessities during pregnancy, a fetus doesn’t thrive and could be born at low birth weight. Learn more about how poverty affects Americans here.

  • The Environmental Impact of Food Waste

    The food cycle doesn’t just end at our trash can. Food waste that ends up in landfills and rots produces a large amount of methane – a more powerful greenhouse gas than even CO2. The food wasted in landfills is responsible for roughly 8% of global emissions.

Move For Hunger's Bulk Recovery program aims to ‘squash’ hunger and reduce food waste by leveraging transportation partners to deliver surplus fresh food from farms and other sources to communities in need. Launched in 2021, the program has developed innovative transportation and cold storage solutions to assist unique partners across the country. By ‘sprouting’ partnerships with organizations like gleaning groups, farmer's markets, and marathons, the program rescues bulk surplus food and organizes its transportation.

If you’re looking to donate food in bulk or need assistance picking up bulk products, please connect with us!
