Help Support Move For Hunger By Making A Donation To Provide Meals For Those In Need!
Target has partnered with Move For Hunger to help support their efforts to rescue food as people are moving and provide meals for those in need. Employees and supporters will be collecting food through their their participation in the Front Porch Food Drive. All food collected will be donated to Second Harvest Heartland. We are also asking anyone that would like to make a financial contribution to support Move For Hunger's efforts to do so here.
Move For Hunger is the first and only non-profit organization that has mobilized the moving, relocation, and multi-family housing industries to fight hunger and food waste by collecting unopened, non-perishable food from people who are moving and delivering it to local food banks and food pantries across the United States and Canada. Move For Hunger’s innovative, sustainable food-rescue programs have resulted in the recovery of over 20 million pounds of food to date, or the equivalent of more than 17 million meals for people in need since it's inception in 2009.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a massive economic impact and has drastically increased the need for emergency food assistance nationwide. Before the pandemic hit, 37 million Americans were already facing daily hunger, and estimates say 17.1 million more people will experience food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Already vulnerable, low-income populations--including school-aged children receiving free/reduced lunch, senior citizens, people experiencing homelessness, and those who are unemployed--are even more at risk. Food banks, pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters are on the front lines, helping our most vulnerable populations every day.
Experts agree that the effects of COVID-19 will require a long-term response, and Move For Hunger and its network are determined to see it through. Move For Hunger remains committed to helping support our food bank & pantry partner with our food rescue deliveries. In the months since the crisis began in the US, Move For Hunger and its network have helped to transport more than 2.3 million pounds of food, providing more than 1.9 million meals for those in need since the pandemic started a few months ago. Your support will accelerate Move For Hunger’s response to the growing hunger crisis our country is facing. Help Target put a spotlight on this important issue at a time when many are experiencing hunger for the first time in their lives.
