JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Mar. 21, 2017) – The Suddath Companies has partnered with Move For Hunger, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, to help fight hunger and provide much-needed assistance to food banks across the country. As a partner, The Suddath Companies will support Move For Hunger’s efforts to reduce food waste and fight hunger nationwide; to date, the non-profit’s network of relocation professionals has collected and delivered more than 7.6 million pounds of food – providing more than 6.3 million meals to local community food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.
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. The Suddath Companies has more than 20 locations across the United States that are collecting non-perishable food items from their customers and delivering them directly to their local food banks. 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.
“Every community in the United States has residents who are facing hunger; meanwhile, 40% of all food produced in our country ends up in a landfill,” explains Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. “It’s because of partners like The Suddath Companies that we’re able to continue our mission of getting food to the people who need it most. We are so grateful for their support.”
“Suddath® is thrilled to announce our partnership with Move For Hunger,” said Larry Goldman, Vice President of Global Residential Sales, with The Suddath Companies. “With our company’s strength, resources, and passionate employees, we can make a significant impact on every community we serve.”
With one in seven Americans affected by food insecurity, including over 15 million children, it has never been more important to come together to help our neighbors in need. Through the support of partners like The Suddath Companies, Move For Hunger can continue to help the nearly 50 million Americans struggling to find their next meal.
