Over 4.8 million California residents are food insecure, with over 20% of those in need being children. Meanwhile, over 40% of all food produced in the United States ends up in landfills*. What can you do to help? By joining Team Move For Hunger, your fundraising donations go to help keep much needed food on the table for many, instead of in the trash.
WHAT DO MY DONATIONS DO?
By becoming a member of Team Move For Hunger, your fundraising donations go to keep our nation’s food banks stocked and meals on the table. Our network of relocation industry specialists help to reduce food waste and deliver much needed food to our local food banks when people are moving. With nearly 42 million Americans that struggle with hunger, your help is needed more than ever. And since 96% of every dollar donated is going back to our hunger relief and food rescue programs, you can be assured that your miles are turned into meals for those in need. In the last seven years, our network of movers, realtors and corporate housing providers have delivered over 9 million pounds of food – let’s keep it moving!
HOW DOES THE TEAM WORK?
Great question! All you need to do is fill out our online registration form and our Team Captain Emily will send over some fundraising and training tips, along with a link to create your personal fundraising page on Crowdrise.

WHAT IF DON’T RAISE $1,000?
