PLANO, Texas (March 22, 2019) – Altair Global, one of the world’s premier relocation management companies, and Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization, announced today that they have renewed a partnership that will reduce food waste and fight hunger nationwide.
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 continue to integrate Move For Hunger’s model into their relocation policies. To date, the Move For Hunger network has collected and delivered more than 13 million pounds of food – providing nearly 11 million meals – to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.
“More than 41 million Americans face hunger every day, but we’re wasting 40% of the food we produce every year,” explains Adam Lowy, executive director and founder of Move For Hunger. “Since 2012, Altair Global’s supplier network has collected more than 1.1 million lbs. of food, which is enough to provide 830,000 meals. We are proud to call them our partners.”
“Partnering with Move For Hunger is really natural for Altair Global,” said Chad Sterling, chief executive officer of Altair Global. “As a part of our commitment to experience management, we want to provide a meaningful journey to our customers, and what could be more meaningful than to provide meals for those in need by simply donating what you were going to throw away. We’re proud to be working with Move For Hunger once again.” Through the support of partners like Altair Global, Move For Hunger can continue to help the more than 41 million Americans who are 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. In addition to collecting food from people who are moving to new homes, Move For Hunger helps companies and individuals across the United States and Canada organize successful food drives. To date, they have collected more than 13 million pounds of food. For more information, or to find out how you can host your own food drive, visit www.MoveForHunger.org.
