Move for Hunger was launched in 2009 when founder Adam Lowy saw how much food was being thrown away when people relocate.  His family’s moving company saw first hand how people tossed or left behind canned goods and more every time they moved.

Since launching Move for Hunger, Lowy and his network of apartment management companies and national movers have collected 26 million pounds of food. That’s 21 million meals!  They have helped food banks across the nation keep people in need fed.

Move For Hunger is a national nonprofit organization that has created a sustainable way to reduce food waste & fight hunger. Our mission is to mobilize the leaders of the moving, relocation and multi family industries to provide their customers, clients, and residents with the opportunity to donate their food when they move.  All of the food stays local-a key component of Move For Hunger’s model. Members of Move For Hunger also organize community food drives, participate in awareness campaigns, and create employee engagement programs.  

Since 2009, Move For Hunger has delivered more than 25 million pounds of food to food banks and pantries all across the United States & Canada providing more than 20 million meals for those in need. Members of Move For Hunger’s network also organize community food drives, participate in awareness campaigns, and create employee engagement programs.

Move For Hunger’s network now includes over 1,100 moving companies, more than 2,900+ multi-family apartment communities, and many of the world’s leading relocation companies.

The need to help fight hunger and food waste is more important than ever.  37 million Americans face hunger every day.  1 in 6 children are unsure of when they will have their next meal.  Meanwhile, we waste 40% of the food we produce every year.  Since the Covid-19 pandemic started, an estimated 17.1 million MORE Americans are food insecure. The work that Move For Hunger does to help support local food banks & pantries across the country is more crucial than ever.

35 million people move each year.  If we rescued just 1 pound of food from each of them, we’d be able to provide 29 million meals for families in need.
