Review for Move For Hunger Inc, Red Bank, NJ, USA
I am proud to share that I manage the incredible partnership between my company AVE and Move For Hunger, which is now in its sixth year. When our company leadership first met Move For Hunger founder Adam, they were inspired by his passion and simple solution to a large problem -- reducing food insecurity in our communities. As a leader in temporary housing and property management, AVE, like Lowy's Moving, serves people on the move and when people move, unused food sadly ends up in landfills. Adam's simple solution of having moving companies handle the logistics of getting that food from the mover to the food banks makes a huge difference and provides cost savings to the food banks. We currently own and operate 13 residential properties and because of our partnership with Move For Hunger, we have a partnership with moving companies who visit our properties on a regular rotation to pick up food that we collect from our residents when they move out and then drop it off at the local food pantries. We also host an annual food drive before Thanksgiving and organize fund-raisers like raffles and truck pulls. It makes our team members feel so good to know they are giving back to the community and making a difference. The Move For Hunger team works passionately to grow their network, constantly recruiting more property management companies and corporate housing providers to increase their impact. Move For Hunger has become part of our company culture, and we are so proud of that!
