Moving companies have united in an effort to help feed the hungry in a program called Move for Hunger. One of the latest companies to contribute La Habra Relocations in Orange County, California. To date, over 160 real estate professionals across 43 states have joined together to bring in over 658,000 pounds of food which has been delivered to various food banks across the nation.
Move for Hunger is the brainchild of Adam Lowy who noticed that many families, in the process of moving, threw out perfectly good food items rather than deal with moving them. The food was typically thrown away to help lighten the load of the move. Lowy, who worked in his family’s moving business in New Jersey, decided to take action and so Move for Hunger was born. Move for Hunger collects non-perishable items like canned food, boxed pastas, peanut butter and more.
La Habra Relocations will collect unwanted food from its customers and transport those items to food banks throughout the Southern California area. It is estimated that one out of every six Americans currently struggle to know where their next meal will come from. After learning of these numbers, La Habra Relocations, who has been in business for over 65 years, decided they wanted to be involved in the program.
