New York, NY – Divine Moving & Storage, a premier relocation company in NYC, has committed to fighting hunger in their community by partnering with the national hunger relief organization Move For Hunger.
As part of their national network, Divine Moving & Storage joins Move For Hunger’s force of relocation 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 over 1.3 million people in the five boroughs; 1 in 5 children in the city go to bed hungry each night.
Divine Moving & Storage, who provides relocation services throughout the area, recognized the urgency of their neighbors’ needs and joined Move For Hunger to continue the fight against hunger and spread awareness of the growing need in New York City and across the United States.
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. The crew of Divine Moving & Storage 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 Divine Moving & Storage 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 David Cohen of Divine Moving & Storage. “Move For Hunger gives us the opportunity to help our community in a meaningful way.”
With over 16% of the population in New York City affected by food insecurity, including nearly 400,000 children, it has never been more important to come together to help neighbors who are less fortunate. Through the support of partners like Divine Moving & Storage, Move For Hunger can continue to help the nearly 50 million Americans struggling to find their next meal.
Move For Hunger is a non-profit organization that mobilizes the relocation industry to fight hunger and reduce food waste. They work with companies across the United States and Canada to collect unopened, non-perishable food from people who are relocating and deliver it to local food banks. To date, their network has collected over 7,000,000 pounds of food – that’s the equivalent of 6,000,000 meals – for the nearly 50 million Americans who struggle with food insecurity.
