Firefighting’s Finest Moving & Storage has been recognized for delivering 288,000 pounds of food – enough to provide 240,000 meals – to the Tarrant Area Food Bank.

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, Firefighting’s Finest 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. Firefighting’s Finest also assists with dozens of food drives in the community each year by volunteering to pick up the donations from the events and deliver them to the Food Bank.

“Firefighting’s Finest Moving & Storage has been one of the most reliable and committed members of our network,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director of Move For Hunger. “We are so proud of the work they are doing to help people who are struggling with food insecurity in Texas.”

“Firefighting’s Finest Moving and Storage is dedicated to service, both to our customer and our community,” said Robert Chan, Firefighting’s Finest Moving & Storage’s Director of Sales & Marketing. “This spirit of service has been instilled in us through our years of fire and military service. We are dedicated to doing our part and more to end hunger and help the lives of those that it affects so negatively. The work to end hunger may never stop but we will never tire.”
