AMITYVILLE, NY – Maffucci Moving & Storage, a Bekins Van Lines agent, has been recognized by Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization, for delivering 13,000 pounds of food – enough to provide more than 10,000 meals – to Long Island Cares.
People tend to throw a lot of “stuff” away when they move, including perfectly good food. As part of Move For Hunger’s national network of relocation professionals, Maffucci Moving & Storage provides their customers with the opportunity to donate unopened, non-perishable food during the moving process and volunteers to deliver the donations to the food bank, free of charge. Maffucci Moving and Storage has also been making bi-weekly trips to deliver donations from Long Island Cares to the South Shore Service Center, a food pantry in Lindenhurst.
“More than 155,000 people on Long Island are food insecure, including 1 in 8 children,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director of Move For Hunger. “Maffucci Moving & Storage is working every day to help feed people in the communities they serve. We are so grateful for their support.”
“We are proud to support Move for Hunger in their fight to end hunger in our community,” said Judd Levine of Maffucci Moving & Storage. “Thank you to all of our clients, employees, and friends for helping us provide 10,000 desperately-needed meals to people in our area over the last 6 months.”
More than 40 million Americans face hunger each day. Meanwhile, 40% of the food in the United States each year is wasted. Through the support of partners like Maffucci Moving & Storage, Move For Hunger can continue to reduce food waste and fight hunger nationwide.
Move For Hunger is a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger.
