National Van Lines and Move For Hunger Announce 8th Partnership Renewal to Fight Hunger Across America

RED BANK, N.J. -- National Van Lines, an interstate van line specializing in full-service moving, packing, and storage services for residential and commercial long distance customers, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announce 8th year of partnership to reduce food waste and fight hunger nationwide.

National Van Lines joined the Move For Hunger network in 2014. Since joining, they have added 25 National Van Line agents from across the United States, who have since contributed more than 365,000 meals to food insecure communities nationwide. Their efforts in the fight against hunger are desperately needed since more than 42 million Americans face hunger every day.

"Partnering with Move For Hunger was an easy choice to make," said Tim Helenthal, Chairman & CEO of National Van Lines, Inc. "Move For Hunger serves a vital need in communities all over the country, and it's so easy for our agents to get involved with this amazing organization. We have a moral obligation to help those in need. For the wealthiest country in the world to have one in six children be food insecure is shameful. I believe we have an earthly mission to take care of each other; making sure everyone has enough to eat is the best place to start."

Move For Hunger was founded in 2009 by Adam Lowy, and over the course of 11 years has provided more than 26 million pounds of food, equalling over 22 million meals, to food pantries and banks across the United States. Move For Hunger's network of more than 1,000 moving companies volunteer to collect unopened, non-perishable food and deliver it to their local food banks.

"Partnering with National Van Lines is vital to the mission of Move For Hunger," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "Having partners who are passionate about our mission is something we'll never take for granted."

Respage and Move For Hunger Announce Collaborative Effort to Fight Hunger Nationwide

NARBERTH, Pa. -- Respage - a leading provider of apartment marketing services for thousands of communities nationwide, and Move For Hunger - a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announced a new partnership that will fight hunger and reduce food waste nationwide. With estimates showing that the number of Americans facing hunger in 2020 could increase by 46% - that's 17 million more people - the collaborative efforts of Respage and Move For Hunger have never been more important than they are right now.

People throw away a lot of things when they move, including perfectly good food. Move For Hunger's network of more than 1,000 moving companies, more than 1,500 multifamily apartment communities, and many of the world's leading relocation management companies, volunteer to collect this unopened, non-perishable food and deliver it to their local food banks. To date, Move For Hunger's network of relocation professionals and multifamily properties has collected and delivered more than 19 million pounds of food - providing 16 million meals - to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.

The partnership will enable Respage to support Move For Hunger's food rescue programs and encourage the clients, associations, and property management companies they work with to integrate the Move For Hunger model into the moving out process for residents. It will also provide the opportunity to continue to expand the Move For Hunger network: a robust community of engaged individuals that want to make a difference in the lives of others and have the resources available to create large scale change.

"Partnering with Respage both complements and advances our mission, so this collaboration was a natural fit," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "With such devastating hunger statistics all around the country, the support of Respage will help strengthen our efforts and allow us to provide meals to those struggling to put food on the table."

"When we discovered Move For Hunger, it was clear that this was an organization that was a perfect fit for Respage. Our partnership is an important milestone in our commitment to give back to our communities and help support those less fortunate than ourselves," said Jackie Koehler, CEO of Respage. "Today more than ever, people around the country - and the world - are struggling with hunger issues, and we are dedicated to making a positive impact within this cause through our work in multifamily."

Rates of household food insecurity are going to remain high for the foreseeable future. Food banks, pantries, and shelters are the only places millions of people can turn to for help. Move For Hunger and Respage are committed to doing their part to fight for the families, children, seniors, and vulnerable communities who lack reliable access to affordable, nutritious food.
