Stewart Moving & Storage Recommits to Partnership With Move For Hunger

September 20, 2019 | 2:03pm

MIDLOTHIAN, VA – Stewart Moving & Storage and Move For Hunger have renewed their partnership to reduce food waste and fight hunger in the United States. As a member of the Move For Hunger network since 2016, and a proud partner of the hunger-relief organization for the past two years, Stewart Moving & Storage’s nine branches has provided more than 40,000 meals to people in the communities they serve.

People throw away a lot of things when they move, including food. Stewart Moving & Storage educates their customers about the issues of hunger and food waste and encourages them to donate their non-perishable food items when they move. Stewart Moving & Storage then delivers the donations to the local food bank or pantry, free of charge.

“More than 40 million Americans face hunger every day, but we are wasting 40% of the food in the United States each year,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. “Stewart Moving & Storage is providing a sustainable solution to both problems. In addition to the donations, they are also teaching their customers how to be more conscious of hunger and food waste in their community going forward. We are proud to call them our partners.”

“We are so proud to partner with Move for Hunger in all the communities we serve,” said Jennifer Zeile, Director of Marketing & Business Development for Stewart Moving & Storage. “Hunger is such a preventable issue in the United States today; if everyone just chipped in and did their part. We’re committed to doing ours.”
