About Move For Hunger
Over 40 million Americans struggle with hunger. At the same time, 40% of the food produced in the US ends up in landfills. When people move, they throw away a lot of "stuff." Unfortunately, some of this "stuff" is perfectly good food that could be donated to a family in need rather than be thrown away. Move For Hunger works to rescue the unopened, non-perishable food during the moving process and deliver it to local food banks. Move For Hunger also organizes hundreds of food drives across the nation each year to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to fight hunger. To date, Move For Hunger is working with over 1,000 relocation companies in 50 states and our network has collected over 14 million pounds of food! Your support will directly impact the number of people we are able to feed in the years ahead. 96% of every donation goes directly towards our hunger relief and food waste reduction programs.
35 million people move each year - if we rescued just 1 pound of food from each of them, we'd be able to provide 29 million meals for families in need.
