I interned at Move For Hunger for 9 months with the programming team. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. The entire staff loves their job and devotes their time to giving back. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly. It was an honor to work here. I recommend Move For Hunger as a place of work, to volunteer, to donate to, or host a food drive with!

Move For Hunger has instituted one of the most novel ways to combat a critical mission (hunger) I've personally ever encountered. It's so impressive how they've been able to scale their network of movers and make a community-level impact across many areas in the U.S; it's a real testament to the organization's leadership and dedication.

There are so many wonderful things about Move For Hunger, it is really hard to know where to start!

I suppose I should start with the MFH team! They are amazing! There is an energy about them from top to bottom that just simply makes you excited to be a part of their program!

They are dedicated to their focus on feeding the hungry and are aggressive in seeking out ways to accomplish that singular focus.

MFH is innovative in their approach to new ideas and ways to reach out about feeding the hungry! I applaud their efforts during COVID-19 as it simply wasn't easy; however they are finding new ways to continue moving the initiative forward.

I am a proud supporter of the cause and adore this organization. They make me proud to be a part of their journey!

Adam and Raquel and TEAM are incredible to work with and our Company loves giving back in our community and on a larger scale as well. Move For Hunger was great in directing us to a local food bank to work with and we have been helping transport emergency food boxes during COVID and will continue to help them for years to come. Thank you Move For Hunger!!!

I first learned about Move For Hunger a few years ago from a supplier partner who shared the value they brought in creating sustainability and a cost savings in our Global Talent Mobility program. The simple idea to rescue food from our employees who are relocating in order to serve the food insecure made business sense, and also created an opportunity to positively engage our employees. My passion to make a difference and on corporate social responsibility lead me to be the inaugural Corporate Action Network (CAN) Committee Chair in 2019, educating others about Move For Hunger and engaging the Global Talent Mobility industry in participating in food drives and other fundraising events. In 2019 we held a truck pull in Portland raising over $25,000. As Move For Hunger has continued to grow they have expanded their footprint beyond the Global Talent Mobility industry, while continuing to make a meaningful impact in the local communities where we all live and work. It warms my heart to continue to be involved in Move For Hunger year after year. The need continues to grow and I would highly recommend your becoming involved as a Move For Hunger champion!

Its been 10 years that I have been involved with Move For Hunger. As a supplier to the Moving Industry I became involved first as a cheerleader- bringing the founder Adam to Mover Associations etc and banging the drum for their non profit and its perfect fit with the Moving Industry . As time has gone on I have become a stronger supporter and seen them do incredible things to feed the Hungry in America. They are creative in their approach to the issue at hand and always find interesting and fulfilling ways for their partners to participate . Its never just a " feel good" process but always involves planning team building, and project management which helps their partners grow with the task at hand.
Finally- their founder and Executive Director has become a friend but I can candidly say he really is loved in the moving industry ( and probably in the corporate housing industry and other things he touches) mainly because he eats sleeps and breathes his passion for the cause. That has helped him create a great staff that "do great things together".

I've been working with Move For Hunger (MFH) for 7yrs. With MFH assistance we have collected more than 100,000lbs of food for locally communities. MFH is easy to work with, very dependable and has been a huge value add for our company. We currently work with MFH at our 5 locations on the east coast and will continue to help fight hunger in our areas. Thanks again- Jeff Collins- Moving Ahead Services
