Move for Hunger | Cleveland & Columbus Movers
Making Your Move Matter
Chances are if you have booked a move with our Cleveland or Columbus movers recently, you have been brought up to speed on the Move for Hunger Program. In many moves, the kitchen is one of the last rooms to be packed – and food is often discarded due to space limitations and other related reasons. Move For Hunger is an organization that has been partnering with moving companies, realtors and the likes to ensure that any discarded food items go to those in need, instead of into the trash.
Move for Hunger
At Moving Ahead Services, any time our Cleveland or Columbus movers schedule a residential or long distance move, we ask our customers if they would like to participate in the Move for Hunger program. All that this entails is receiving a box or boxes from our team, and as you pack leading up to moving day – simply put any un-opened, non-perishable food items that won’t be making the trip with you into the Move for Hunger box! This can be anything from canned vegetables and soups, to chips and boxed dinners and so much more.
We then collect these boxes on the day of your move, and we coordinate and take them to local food banks, food pantries and shelters, to provide food for those in need. Cutting down on food waste, while also providing a valuable service to communities across the country – Move for Hunger is a win-win! Our Cleveland and Columbus movers have eagerly picked up the program from day one, and even wage friendly on-going bets for which office can round up the most food for those in need.
Whether you are preparing for your big moving day, or you have a close family member or friend on the move, consider Moving Ahead Services for any food items that won’t be making the trip!
