Move For Hunger Mover of the Year
Mover of the Year, round 2! We are proud and excited to have been selected as Move For Hunger 2018 Mover of the Year. This award simply could not be made possible without the generous support of our community!
About Move For Hunger
Move for Hunger is an incredible program that aims to rescue food from the trash dump, and instead re-allocate it to those in need in our communities. As part of the Move for Hunger program, our team works tirelessly with our clients and communities to rescue food! Whether it’s food that would normally end up in the trash on moving day, or proceeds from a food drive, gathering and transporting it for meaningful impact is our number one goal!
As a result of a HUGE food rescue following the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon and the Akron Race for the Cure, we were again recognized as the 2018 Mover of the Year! It goes without saying that we simply could not compete and have an impact without thoughtful, generous community support.
The 2018 Impact
In 2018, Moving Ahead Services rescued 8,597 pounds of food! This provided over 7,000 meals to individuals in need. As part of the semi-annual Stevens Worldwide Van Lines Conference in gorgeous sunny Florida, we were presented with this incredible recognition.
We plan to drive full speed ahead in 2019! Help us help those in need! Donate food on your moving day, let us know about events and organizations that often have food leftover or host a food drive at your business or workplace! We handle all of the logistics!
