SuiteAmerica Commits to Feed the Hungry

SuiteAmerica

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 9, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Move For Hunger is thrilled to announce that SuiteAmerica is the first nationwide corporate housing provider to join the only international network of relocation companies dedicated to ending hunger.

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.”

Victory Packaging Feeds 33 Regions: Nation’s Largest Packaging Distributor Opens Its Doors for Massive Food Drive

Nationwide Food DriveHOUSTON, Texas, March 27, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Move For Hunger announces that from April 1-15, 2013, Victory Packaging is holding its First Annual Victory Cup Nationwide Food Drive. As the largest packaging material distributor in North America, Victory has offices in 24 states across the country. For two weeks, these offices will compete to see which can donate the largest amount of non-perishable food items to its local food bank. At the conclusion of the food drive, Victory will reward the winning office with a special prize.

According to recent studies, 1 in 6 Americans struggle to afford food, and 17 million American children go to bed hungry every night. In recent years, emergency food kitchens in major American cities have reported an increased demand for aid. In the past year, nearly all of these emergency kitchens have had to both reduce the portion size of their meals and turn people away without offering help. With the economic forecast uncertain, it is more than a remote possibility that these conditions will worsen and more hungry people will be turned away.

Federal food assistance programs go a long way, but they are not enough to solve the problem on their own. Responsible businesses like Victory Packaging are indispensable in supporting their communities, and the economic and social value of their generous contributions cannot be understated.

Adam Lowy, Executive Director of Move For Hunger, offers his praise: “Many companies help us in the fight against hunger, but Victory Packaging is going above and beyond. By putting the full weight of their company behind this food drive, they prove that helping their neighbors is not just their concern, but a core part of who they are.”

Shore Business, Bands and Beach Clubs Team Up to Fight Hunger at Surfside Food Drive

ASBURY PARK, N.J., Aug. 16, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Move For Hunger presents the Fourth Annual Surfside Food Drive and Concert Series to benefit the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. While hunger may not be on people’s minds during the summer holidays, hunger takes no vacations. The summer months can be some of the most difficult for food banks and struggling families as children who receive subsidized lunches are home from school.

Area residents are urged to bring down non-perishable food items from September 1st to 3rd from 12 – 5 p.m. at the 4th Ave boardwalk in Asbury Park. The three-day event includes free performances by local artists right on the boardwalk from E Street Shuffle, Quincy Mumford & the Reason Why, Matt Wade, The Amboys and more. There will also be the 2nd annual Surfside CornholeTournament at Porta National Park as well as a free movie night on Saturday.

Anyone who donates non-perishable food items during the event will receive a free Surfside 2012 T-shirt and are entered into a raffle to win one of the ton of prizes from event sponsors. The event is open to the public and all are welcome to come down and enjoy the free music.

Any Shore resident can take part in the drive as Move For Hunger has partnered with over 20 beach clubs from Rumson to Normandy Beach to collect non-perishable food items all month long. Starting August 15, collection boxes will be conveniently placed at each participating beach club or business.

“The Surfside Food Drive is a great way for summer residents to clear out the kitchens and pantries of seasonal properties while making a difference for the less fortunate on the Jersey Shore,” says Adam Lowy, executive director of Move For Hunger. “Last year over 3,500 lbs. was collected, enough to provide 2,692 meals to the needy in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.”

Lowy’s Moving Service, the local partner of Move For Hunger, has generously donated all the boxes for the food drive as well as transportation to deliver the food collections directly to the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
