On average, roughly 33 million Americans move each year. From long distance relocations to shorter moves to an apartment across town, moving anywhere requires a great deal of preparation. Despite all of the prepping and planning that goes into a move, one smaller detail is often overlooked – potential food waste.
In the weeks leading up to a move, many people struggle to use up all of the food they have in their pantries, while struggling to justify bringing it with them to their new space. Food can be difficult to transport, and seemingly no big deal to simply throw out; however, for the 38 million Americans facing hunger every day, this is a huge waste. While some people might intend to donate unopened canned goods and non-perishable food items to a local food bank or community pantry, the truth is that doing so can be difficult to remember during the hustle and bustle of a hectic move.
Move For Hunger is here to offer a solution to this issue by providing individuals with the opportunity to donate food during a move instead of throwing it out. By partnering with moving companies, real estate professionals, corporate housing providers, relocation management companies, and apartment complexes around the country, it has never been easier for those preparing for a move to make a difference in their communities while decreasing the amount of unopened food that is going to waste.
So, how does it work?
Move For Hunger partners with moving professionals to coordinate a pickup from individuals in the midst of a move. Moving companies supply a box with MFH’s label in the kitchen of any home, which residents can fill with unopened, non-perishable food items. This box will then be delivered to a local food bank or pantry to ensure that 100% of donations stay within the community. Reducing food waste, helping your community, and having a waste-free move has never been easier.
