DENVER, CO Colorado Hi-Tec Moving & Storage has been recognized by Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization, for delivering 50,000 pounds of food – enough to provide 41,000 meals – to the Food Bank of the Rockies.

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, Colorado Hi-Tec 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.

“More than 627,000 people in Colorado are food insecure and, yet, 40% of the food produced in the United States each year is wasted,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director of Move For Hunger. “Colorado Hi-Tec Moving & Storage is working every day to address both issues. We are so grateful for their support.”

“Move For Hunger is a perfect fit for us,” said Karen Dickens of Colorado Hi-Tec Moving & Storage. “We can’t think of a better way to consistently give back to the community.”
