Move for Hunger Mover of the Year

Jan 08, 2017

Over the last seven years, Move for Hunger has collected seven million pounds of unwanted food to be distributed to those in need.  At the IAM conference Meghan Longo, from Move for Hunger, explained that in the USA one in five children struggle with hunger and some 50 million Americans don’t know where the next meal is coming from.   

Meghan said that since the programme had started IAM members had supplied 1.2 million pounds of food through Move for Hunger.  She said that the process is simple: the crew just collects unwanted food from customers when they move and takes it to the food bank where it is distributed to those in need rather than thrown away.   

Every year the organisation recognises one company that has excelled.  This year the award for Move for Hunger mover of the Year was made to Paxton International.
