This is their second year of partnership, and FINCOR has provided more than 50,000 meals to food insecure communities throughout the United States. They've also helped with transporting donations to food banks, transferring more than 1,900 pounds of food in 2021.

"We partnered with Move For Hunger because we pride ourselves in giving back to the community," said Michael Finn, President of Fincor Construction, Inc. "The morale of our nation has suffered and is suffering due to the global pandemic. Move For Hunger has allowed us to give back to the community to the people hit hardest.

Move For Hunger and Graebel Renew Their Partnership and Turn 11,000 Miles into 47,000 Meals to Help Those in Need

RED BANK, N.J. -- Graebel Companies, Inc., a leading provider of international relocation services, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, today announced they renewed their partnership and commitment to the fight against hunger.

Graebel has been a partner of Move For Hunger since 2016 and has helped provide nearly 100,000 meals over the years. Graebel's passion to end hunger goes far beyond the boardroom and extends to many of its employees. Just last month, 250 employees participated in the Move2 Fight Hunger Challenge, a virtual competition that enabled donations to Move for Hunger by encouraging employees to be active. Throughout the month of September, participants could run, walk, bike, cook, or garden, to contribute meals to those in need. During the competition, Graebel employees exercised a total of 11,000 miles, (17,700 kilometers) which helped provide 47,000 meals.

"We have been so excited to partner with Move For Hunger over the years and this year's Move2 Fight Hunger event was phenomenal," said Ben Ivory, Senior Vice President at Graebel. "We looked for a way to engage our 800+ employees in 11 countries through healthy, family-oriented activities focused on an urgent need in our communities. The Move for Hunger team was amazing, and we can't wait to expand the program next year!"

Graebel is a leader in global talent and workplace mobility. They make it easy for companies to relocate employees or entire offices overseas and across borders. They work in 165 countries and their team speaks 42 languages.

The relocation industry is familiar to Move For Hunger, which has been making an impact since 2009. By mobilizing an entire industry, Move For Hunger and its network of 1,000+ movers have transported 24 million pounds of food (20 million meals) to local food banks in all 50 states and Canada. For over a decade, Move For Hunger has been focused on non-perishable food donations, but has recently launched its new fresh food program which has already collected more than 400,000 meals worth of fresh produce in its first few months.

"With the support of Graebel, we continue to find new ways to make an impact," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "Our fresh food program is well on its way and continues to build on the momentum of the organization."

The support is needed now more than ever. Five million more people have fallen into food insecurity as the result of the pandemic. Forty-two million people in the United States, including 1 in 6 children, don't know where their next meal is coming from.

"When COVID devastated the entire country last year, our network stepped up to deliver 4 million meals, a record for us," continued Lowy. "And with the support of our loyal partner in Graebel, this year we're on track to transport more meals than ever before."

Move For Hunger and Mayflower Transit Announce a New Partnership to Help Fight Hunger in the United States

RED BANK, N.J. -- Mayflower Transit, the nation's most recognized and trusted moving company, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announced today a brand new partnership that will provide much-needed transportation assistance to food banks in the United States while also contributing more than 125,000 meals.

Since its founding in 2009, Move For Hunger has delivered more than 24 million pounds of food - over 20 million meals - across all 50 states and in Canada. The organization continues to increase its impact year after year and is on pace to deliver a record 6 million meals this year alone. The new partnership with Mayflower Transit will only increase its impact.

Mayflower Transit joins an ever-growing network of 1,000+ movers and transportation partners dedicated to fighting food insecurity. Mayflower Transit began with a vision to give people a choice, providing an alternative to using railroads to move household goods. A growing network of paved roads in the early 20th century further enabled long-distance trucking, and thus began Mayflower's foundation as a trailblazer in the moving industry. Over the past 90 years, Mayflower has helped America move with 200 affiliated agents. Mayflower Transit is part of UniGroup, C.A., a cooperative based in suburban St. Louis, Missouri, and also owns the nation's #1 mover United Van Lines, UniGroup Logistics and more.

The new partnership couldn't come at a more important time. After nearly a decade of slowly declining food insecurity in the U.S., the pandemic wiped out the progress made and increased the total number of people struggling to put food on the table to 42 million Americans (1 in 8). Now, the country faces the uncertainty of what the COVID Delta variant will bring as we head into the cooler months when food insecurity usually increases.

"We cannot be more excited about our new partnership with Move For Hunger," President and CEO Marc Rogers said. "The partnership fits hand-in-hand with Mayflower's philanthropic mission to fortify the communities in which we serve through eliminating food waste and fighting hunger. At Mayflower we are seeking new opportunities and pathways to progress that go well beyond simply moving our customer's safely. A partnership with Move For Hunger pairs one of the nation's experts in ensuring millions of meals every year reach the homes of those in need with our vast transportation network. Together, we will be able to increase food security in the communities that need it most."

"I'm thrilled to join forces with Mayflower Transit," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "They're so widely respected and with agents everywhere, we can be that much more effective in our food rescue efforts. Thirty-five percent of all food in the United States goes unused or uneaten. At the same time, people are struggling in every state. The addition of Mayflower and its agents will help put more food in the hands of people who need it most."

Families Facing Food Insecurity Receive Over 27,000 Meals From Employees at CDF Labor Law

IRVINE, Calif. -- The stories are endless of jobs suddenly gone forever and families struggling to get by. As cities across the nation continue to deal with the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, employees at CDF Labor Law LLP (CDF) got busy partnering with food banks and programs aimed to get food into the hands of hungry communities.

"There isn't anyone in our five offices who hasn't seen neighbors, friends and family's jobs disappear because of the pandemic, it's heartbreaking," says longtime employee Dorothy Rausa at CDF. "I know I speak on behalf of other employees at the firm when I say how appreciative I am of the firm's stalwart efforts in the communities in which we work and live to help those in dire need."

She adds, "My co-workers were eager to give, plus with our firm's donation it made this project more important, I love that we take action to help others-not just during the holidays-but all year long."

CDF participated in the 5th annual Food from The Bar program, a campaign driven by the Orange County legal community which raises awareness and provides critically needed meals to food-insecure children, families and seniors in Orange County. Though not the largest law firm, CDF alone, through employee donations and firm sponsorship, raised over $9,000, providing 27,000+ meals to those in need.

Hosted by the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, which ran this year's program between June 1, 2021 - July 2, 2021, the legal community raised a record-breaking $117,661.38 which equates to 352,984 meals.

According to Firm Managing Partner, Marie DiSante, the mobilization of employees from all of its five offices throughout California was inspiring "It was an amazing outpouring of generosity. We may not be as large as other firms, but our employees have huge hearts. I couldn't be prouder," she says.

"I don't think anyone could have predicted how desperate the food need is this year," said Megan Hunker, Donor Relations Associate at Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. "CDF's continued support, especially during a year like this has made a significant impact for Orange County children, families and seniors," she adds.

About CDF Labor Law LLP

For over 25 years, CDF has distinguished itself as one of the top employment, labor and immigration firms in California, defending, advising and counseling national and regional employers with California employees and workforces, as well as California-based startups, midsize ventures, and privately and publicly held companies and Fortune 500 corporations on legal compliance.

Move For Hunger Receives $128,000 Donation from the Assurant Foundation

RED BANK, N.J. -- Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announced today that they have received a $128,735 donation from the Assurant Foundation as part of the '2021 Turning Miles into Meals Challenge.'

Assurant, a leading global provider of housing and lifestyle solutions that supports, protects, and connects major consumer purchases, hosted the 'Turning Miles into Meals Challenge' from May 10 through June 6, with more than 2,200 employees moving to fight hunger. Participants completed weekly and daily challenges to keep them motivated during the month-long event which culminated with an awards ceremony to recognize the group's efforts and to present Move For Hunger with the charitable donation.

This is the second year in a row that Assurant and the Assurant Foundation participated in the 'Turning Miles to Meals Challenge' and exceeded all expectations and goals. In its inaugural year in 2020, roughly 160 Assurant employees participated and moved 15,000 miles to fight hunger. This year, Assurant stepped up in a major way logging more than 128,000 miles or more than 250 million steps. The Assurant Foundation donated $1 to Move For Hunger for each mile earned, and the total donation will help provide 322,000 meals to those families and individuals facing hunger and food insecurity in the U.S.

"Being there to help others especially in times of need and working to strengthen the communities we serve is the heartbeat of our Assurant Cares commitment," said Mike Campbell, president, Global Housing, Assurant. "Our team's enthusiastic support of the critical work of Move For Hunger is one more way we bring our purpose to life while also enhancing our own wellbeing by moving to end hunger."

Since starting in 2009, Move For Hunger has helped transport over 23 million pounds of food (19 million meals) to food banks in every state in the U.S. and in Canada. Last year as COVID-19 shut the country down and unemployment skyrocketed, Move For Hunger and its network rose to the challenge by having its most impactful year yet with over 5 million pounds of food transported (over 4 million meals).

"There are 42 million people in this country who are food insecure. That's 1 in 8 Americans," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "This event is so special because thousands of people mobilized around a common cause. We're so grateful to have a partner in Assurant who is committed to our mission and has the creativity to do something unique to get their entire company involved. After a year inside, I think we all could probably use a few extra steps."

Move For Hunger and Shyft Announce a New Partnership to Help Fight Food Insecurity Nationwide

RED BANK, N.J. -- Shyft, the #1 online moving marketplace, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announced today a new partnership that will grow Move For Hunger's food rescue and hunger relief programs to provide much-needed assistance to food banks across the country.

To date, Move For Hunger has collected and delivered 23 million pounds of food -- providing 19 million meals -- to food banks and pantries all across the United States and Canada.

"Shyft is changing the way people think about moving, and we love that they have incorporated reducing food waste into their model," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "'Donate Your Food When You Move' has been our mantra from the beginning, and it's been our goal to have it become a habitual part of the moving experience. Partnering with Shyft helps us get one step closer to achieving that."

On top of helping collect food with each move, Shyft's financial support will provide over 75,000 meals to those in need.

"We are really proud to join forces with Move for Hunger and contribute to the important cause of eradicating food insecurity through our community of Shyfters," said Keo Sar, Chief Revenue Officer at Shyft. "Covid-19 and its impacts have been everything but a great equalizer, and that's evident from the rise in food insecurity in the US and other parts of the world. We believe that no one should go hungry. That sustenance is a basic human right. Through this partnership, Shyft can make a meaningful difference to the lives of others - providing opportunities to fight hunger and reduce food waste, while banding together employees, clients, and communities for this most worthy cause."

Sar continued, "The bigger impact lies in our ability to influence both our suppliers and customers to engage more with the community through this and other initiatives."

With the global pandemic making food insecurity peak in 2020, Shyft's support couldn't have come at a better time. 42 million Americans are going hungry including 1 in 6 kids. At the same time, 35% of the food produced in the United States ends up in landfills. Move For Hunger continues to step up to the challenge and in 2020, the non-profit transported over 5 million pounds of food (4 million meals), 40% more food than their record-setting year of 2019. Move For Hunger has continued that momentum into the new year by recovering and transporting nearly 1.5 million pounds of food in the first four months, double that same period last year.

Move For Hunger and Altair Global Renew Partnership to Fight Food Insecurity Nationwide

RED BANK, N.J. -- Altair Global, the largest independent, full-service, global mobility services company, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announced today their renewed partnership that will provide much-needed assistance to food banks across the country. Their support will help grow Move For Hunger's food rescue and hunger relief programs.

To date, Move For Hunger has collected and delivered more than 22 million pounds of food ‒ providing over 18 million meals ‒ to food banks and pantries all across the United States and Canada.

Move For Hunger and Altair Global have been partners since 2016 and since then Altair Global has helped provide over 3 million meals to those in need.

"Altair Global has been one of our best partners since they became a part of Move For Hunger," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "They continue to innovate and push the envelope of who they are as a company as well as how they support in the fight against food insecurity."

In the first year of partnering, Altair Global hosted a 'Can The CEO' event where employees could fill the CEO's office with food. The event brought in 770 pounds of food equating to 650 meals. Throughout the years, they continue to try new ways to collect food. Just last December, Altair Global hosted a holiday Grinch-themed food drive and fundraiser that collected more than 5,000 meals. The North Texas Food Bank was the beneficiary of both events.

"Altair's commitment to partnering with Move For Hunger has not wavered. We whole-heartedly pledge our support to the Move For Hunger team and to the cause of raising funds to help those in need," said Chad Sterling, CEO of Altair Global. "As we hope to leave the pandemic behind, we cannot forget those who still need our assistance. Now, more than ever, Altair wants to be a source of hope and help to anyone facing difficult times. Through our partnership with Move For Hunger, we can."

Food insecurity touches every community in the country. At the start of the pandemic 37 million Americans were going hungry and due to the pandemic that increased to 42 million Americans including 13 million children. Move For Hunger rose to the challenge by transporting 40% more food in 2020 than its previous record-setting year in 2019. Through the support of partners like Altair Global, Move For Hunger can continue to fight for the families, individuals and children who are most in need of food assistance.
