Steinway Moving & Storage Delivers 20K LBS. of Food to Local Food Pantry

June 20, 2019 | 10:45 am | Written by

On May 22, our friends at Steinway Moving & Storage assisted with the Canned Castle food drive at Farmingdale State College. Students competed to see which team could build the best castle out of canned goods, bottled water, and other non-perishable items, which would ultimately be donated to a local food pantry.

As you can imagine, building castles takes requires a lot of materials! 20,000 lbs. worth, to be exact! Of course, moving this amount of food would be a challenge for the students, so our friends at Steinway Moving & Storage volunteered send one of their trucks to pick up and deliver this massive donation to the INN Soup Kitchen in Hempstead, NY!

More than 155,000 people on Long Island are food insecure, including 1 in 8 children. Steinway Moving & Storage joined the Move For Hunger network in 2012 and has delivered nearly 140,000 lbs. of food to local food banks/pantries during that time.

Thank you to Matt Schwartzberg and everyone at Steinway Moving & Storage for everything you to do help us fight hunger. We are so grateful for your continued support!

Anyone can start a food drive. We can help!
