​By teaming up with professional moving companies across the country, Move For Hunger has created one of the nation’s largest year-round service programs. It's easy, it's free for families to use, and it's one less thing to pack and move!

Earlier this year, Atlas Van Lines became the inaugural Epic Partner of Move For Hunger. “Working with Move For Hunger holds a special place in the hearts of our Atlas family,” said Jack Griffin, president and chief operating officer of Atlas World Group. “We enjoy giving back to the communities in which we operate through a nonprofit organization that makes it possible to contribute to hunger relief on a daily basis.”

Jordan McNamara with Bloomington Relocation Systems Inc., an agent of North American Van Lines in Normal, Ill., says, “We do this every day and take a bunch of food in at the end of the month; it’s better than a single food drive. You feel proud with what one person donates; you feel proud that there are still good people out there.”

This is just one of many ways that professional movers make a positive impact in communities across America each and every day. Helping the hungry is another great reason why consumers should choose a professional mover. Most of the moving companies that participate in Move for Hunger are an American Moving & Storage certified ProMover.

ProMover certification makes it easier for consumers to find a professional mover. All ProMovers are fully licensed and insured, and meet high standards for safety and professionalism. Get free referrals from certified ProMovers to schedule free in-home estimates for your move.

PROFESSIONAL MOVERS PROVIDE MILLIONS OF MEALS TO FAMILIES IN NEED

Professional movers are making a real difference in the lives of hungry Americans. Nearly 500 moving companies have donated more than 4.2 million meals to families in need in the past year. The American Moving & Storage Association is proud to partner with Move For Hunger, which works with professional movers to combat the growing hunger problem in the U.S. and across North America.

Move For Hunger teams up with movers to pick up the unwanted, non-perishable food items from families who are moving and deliver it to their local food banks. Many people throw out a lot of “stuff” when they move.  Unfortunately, a lot of this “stuff” is food that could be delivered to a family in need rather than thrown away.
