DALLAS, Aug. 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Around the Block Moving Company announced its partnership with Move for Hunger, a program designed to reduce food waste and fight hunger. Around the Block has been able to help feed more than 500 people in the Dallas and Richardson area since partnering with the national non-profit organization.
Move for Hunger has a vast network of relocation professionals who have agreed to collect and deliver more than 10.5 million pounds of food – translating to more than 8.5 million meals – to food banks and pantries across the U.S. and Canada.
Around the Block Moving Company, and other relocation specialists involved in the program, ask people who are moving to donate their unused food instead of throwing it out. North Texas is growing in population and popularity as a place to live. That is where Move for Hunger comes in. Homeowners across Texas are encouraged to donate their unopened, non-perishable food items when they move, a free service to residents that doubles as the chance to make a difference in the lives of neighbors in need.
One in eight Americans are food insecure, and this includes more than 13 million children. Through the support of partners like Around the Block, Move For Hunger can help the 42 million Americans who are struggling with knowing where their next meal will come from.
