Fighting Hunger, One Move at a Time
More than 42 million Americans face hunger every day. Allied has partnered with Move For Hunger to help reduce food waste and fight hunger.
A lot is thrown away when moving, including perfectly good food. Through our partnership with Move For Hunger, Allied customers can easily donate unwanted food items, helping to eliminate food waste and feed those in need.
Nearly 33 million Americans move every year – if just one pound of food is collected from every move, we can provide 27.5 million meals to people across the country.
Move For Hunger is a nonprofit organization mobilizing the relocation industry to reduce food waste and feed those in need. As a partner of Move for Hunger, Allied is dedicated to fighting hunger and bringing much-needed support to local food banks across the country.
Since 2013, Allied Van Lines has donated over 5.1 million pounds of food to food banks, which translates to 4.2 million meals.
How it Works
During a move, ask your Allied move consultant to provide a Move For Hunger box, where you can set aside unwanted food items. Your designated Allied crew will collect your donations and ensure it is delivered to local food pantries.
You Can Make a Difference
Whether it's one can of soup or a pantry full of nonperishable food items, your donation will make a meaningful impact in the community. Ask your Allied move consultant for a Move For Hunger box today!
Hunger in America
Forty-two million Americans face hunger every single day. That's 13.1 million children, 5.3 million senior citizens and 1 in 4 U.S. veterans affected by hunger.
Food Waste in America
About 40% of food grown, processed and transported in the U.S. each year goes to waste. That's billions of pounds of food thrown away each year. According to The National Resource Defense Council, if we were able to rescue just 15% of the food we waste, we'd save enough to feed 25 million Americans each year. In a country where millions face hunger every single day, our food waste epidemic is a humanitarian crisis and environmental catastrophe.
Support Move For Hunger
The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the need for emergency food assistance nationwide. Communities that were already struggling have been hit the hardest, and Feeding America estimates that the number of food-insecure Americans could increase by 17 million. A donation of just $25 will provide 63 meals to those who need it most.
