Move For Hunger was founded on the concept that when people move, they often throw out a good deal of "stuff." Unfortunately, a lot of this "stuff" is food that could be delivered to a family in need rather than just left behind. SuiteAmerica locations in Washington D.C. have committed to support the hungry by providing a collection container for non-perishable food items, giving clients the option to donate unwanted food upon checking-out. Bargain Movers Inc. of Maryland will be providing their services to transport and deliver the donated food directly to local food banks. The service is free to customers, and turns every extended stay into an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate, simply by donating non-perishables upon checking out.
Over 50 million Americans experience food insecurity. Children are especially vulnerable to hunger with 17 million American children going to bed hungry each night. One in eight District households is struggling against hunger.
"We are thrilled to have SuiteAmerica join us in the fight against hunger," says Kristy Redford, Development Director at Move For Hunger. "With such devastating hunger statistics at both the local and national level, their efforts will provide crucial support to the food bank's mission to feed the hungry."
Move For Hunger is a non-profit organization that works with relocation companies to combat the growing hunger problem in the United States and across North America. SuiteAmerica joins over 600 moving companies and 5,000 real estate partners that have already committed to Move For Hunger.
"SuiteAmerica has always believed in being a responsible corporate citizen," says Lorna Bosco, SuiteAmerica National Relocation Business Manager. "This partnership with Move For Hunger was a natural fit. We are providing our clients with a very easy opportunity to give back. Now when clients check-out they will have an option to leave their food vs. throwing it out - they can leave knowing their food will be donated to the local food bank and that they are making an important contribution to hunger in the community. We are pleased to be the first corporate housing provider to partner with Move For Hunger and look forward to rolling this program out in locations across the United States."
