Move for Hunger
APEX, NC – Movin’ On Movers, a premier moving and storage company in North Carolina, has committed to fighting hunger in the community by partnering with the national hunger relief organization, Move For Hunger. As part of their national network, Movin’ On Movers joins Move For Hunger’s force of moving companies: to date, they have delivered more than 7 million pounds of food – 6 million meals – to local food banks throughout the United States and Canada. Food insecurity affects nearly 132,000 people in Wake County; 1 in 6 children in the county goes to bed hungry each night. Movin’ On Movers recognized the urgency of their neighbors’ needs and joined Move For Hunger to continue the fight against hunger and spread awareness of the growing needs in North Carolina.
When people move, they often throw out a good deal of “stuff.” Unfortunately, much of this stuff is food that could be delivered to a family in need rather than just left behind. Movin’ On Movers will now be collecting those food items from their customers and delivering them directly to the local community food bank. The service is free to customers and turns every move into an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate, simply by donating the cans and non-perishables on moving day.
“We are thrilled to have Movin’ On Movers join us in the fight against hunger,” says Adam Lowy, Founder and Executive Director of Move For Hunger. “With such devastating hunger statistics at both the local and national level, their efforts will provide crucial support to the food bank’s mission to feed the hungry.”
“When we realized how many of our neighbors were going hungry, we knew we had to do something,” explains Danny Wilson, Owner of Movin’ On Movers. “Move For Hunger” gives us the opportunity to help our community in a meaningful way.”
