Altair Global and Move for Hunger Announce Partnership to Fight Hunger and Reduce Food Waste
PLANO, TEXAS (Mar. 13, 2018) – Altair Global, one of the world’s premier relocation management companies, has partnered with Move for Hunger, a national non-profit organization, to provide much-needed assistance to food banks across the United States. Altair Global will support Move for Hunger’s efforts to reduce food waste and fight hunger nationwide by educating their staff, suppliers and clients about food waste during the moving process.
People throw away a lot of things when they move, including perfectly good food. Move for Hunger’s network of relocation professionals volunteers to collect this unopened, non-perishable food and delivers it to their local food banks. As partners, Altair Global will work to integrate Move for Hunger’s model into our clients’ relocation policies. To date, Move for Hunger has collected and delivered more than 10 million pounds of food – providing more than 8.3 million meals – to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.
Altair Global’s Chief Executive Officer, Chad Sterling, said, “Since we first met, we have been inspired and determined to support Move for Hunger’s mission. As a relocation management firm, we see the complexities of moving firsthand, and we are honored to partner with this incredible organization. We plan to use our sphere of influence – from customers to suppliers to employees – to help reduce food waste and help our neighbors in need.”
“Altair Global’s commitment to sustainability and corporate citizenship is unmatched in the relocation industry,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move for Hunger. “As partners, we’ll be able to share the importance of reducing food waste and fighting hunger with organizations around the globe.”
With one in eight Americans affected by food insecurity, including over 13 million children, it has never been more important to come together to help our neighbors in need. Through the support of partners like Altair Global, Move for Hunger can continue to help the more than 42 million Americans struggling to find their next meal.
