Move For Hunger and SML Relocation Renew Partnership to Fight Food Waste and Hunger Across the United States

NEPTUNE, N.J. -- Simple Moving Labor Relocation (SML), a nationwide moving service company, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, have renewed their partnership for the 5th time to continue their fight against hunger and food waste throughout the United States.

Move For Hunger was founded in 2009 by Adam Lowy, and has provided more than 27 million pounds of food, equaling over 23 million meals, to food pantries and banks across the United States. Since the pandemic started, Move For Hunger has had to meet the growing need of food insecurity in the United States and Canada, where 42 million Americans and 1 in 8 Canadians struggle with hunger.

SML Relocation's partnership with Move for Hunger is unique in that they contribute quarterly based on the direct consumer fundraising they do each quarter. With their fundraising campaign, they invite customers to donate at the time of booking, and then, as a company, match the customer donations. SML Relocation become a partner with Move For Hunger in 2018 and has since provided more than 78,700 meals through monetary contributions to food insecure communities across the nation.

"SML is proud to support this organization in its mission to fight hunger and reduce food waste," says Josh Barnes, vice president of SML Relocation. "Every day across the country millions of individuals are food insecure; our partnership with Move For Hunger provides the most logical way for SML to positively affect real and meaningful change in people's lives."

Move For Hunger has a network of more than 1,100 moving companies, 3,000 multifamily apartment communities, and many of the world's leading relocation management companies, that collect unopened, non-perishable food and deliver it to local food banks.

"We are beyond thankful for 5 years of partnership with SML and the ability to work with each partner in a way that makes the biggest impact on food insecure communities," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger.

Registration Now Open for First Annual Arizona Truck Pull – Fundraiser to Support Move For Hunger

PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Move For Hunger announced today that registration is now open for the first annual Arizona Truck Pull. The event, in which teams of 5-10 will compete to see who can pull a moving truck 100 feet in the fastest time, will be hosted by Beltmann Relocation Group and the Arizona Relocation Alliance at Uncle Bear's Brewery in Gilbert on Saturday, April 13 from 2 - 6 p.m.

Registration is $200 per team and can be completed at http://AZTruckPull.com. Proceeds from the event will benefit Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization that mobilizes the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger.

"In previous years, the employees of Beltmann did most of the heavy lifting to get money and food together to make a difference, which we loved," says Beltmann Phoenix's General Manager, Steve Rinaldo. "However, the inaugural truck pull contest is a fun and engaging way to pull in community support this year, and hopefully beyond."

People tend to throw a lot of "stuff" away when they move, including perfectly good food. As a member of Move For Hunger's national network of relocation professionals, Beltmann Relocation Group provides their customers with the opportunity to donate unopened, non-perishable food during the moving process and volunteers to deliver the donations to the local food bank, free of charge.

More than 1 million people in Arizona, including 1 in 5 children, are food insecure - meaning they lack reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Meanwhile, 40% of all the food produced in the United States each year is wasted. Since joining Move For Hunger in 2012, Beltmann Relocation Group has delivered more than 41,000 lbs. of food to the Hope For Hunger Food Bank, which is enough to provide 34,700 meals.

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.
