Congrats to Moving Ahead Services, June’s Mover of the Month!July 29, 2015 | 7:56 pm |
Each month Move For Hunger recognizes a moving company who goes above and beyond in the fight against hunger. For the month of June, we are happy to announce that Move For Hunger’s Mover of the Month is Moving Ahead Services of Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio, a proud partner of Move For Hunger since 2014.
Moving Ahead Services is committed to serving their community and helping their neighbors in need. In addition to collecting unwanted, non-perishable food from their moving customers, Moving Ahead Services has mobilized their offices across Ohio to function as food donation drop-off sites for the local community. The collected donations are delivered to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and Dublin Food Pantry, where the food is distributed to families in need.
As a recent partner of Move For Hunger, Moving Ahead Services’ commitment to reducing food waste has become an integral part of company culture. Since joining in March of this year, they have already donated over 1,000 lbs of food. In June alone, the Moving Ahead Services team collected 470 lbs, providing over 392 life-saving meals!
“We noticed how much food is wasted during a move and Move For Hunger offered a great idea that works well for us.” Jeff Collins, president of Moving Ahead Services, proudly comments on their recent partnership with Move for Hunger. “We see how much food banks appreciate our donations, and it’s amazing to be helping to fight hunger in our community.”
One in six Americans are affected by food insecurity. In Ohio alone, it is estimated that almost 2 million people struggle to obtain food on a day to day basis, including 25% of all children. Moving Ahead Services strives to reduce these numbers and has already made a great difference in their community. We are proud to recognize their work and name them our Mover of the Month. Keep up the good work, Moving Ahead Services!
