One of the biggest nonprofit organizations that we support is called Move For Hunger. We work with Move For Hunger to help make food donations to our local food banks. How do we do that? Well, when you’re about to move out of your house and realize that you have nonperishable food items that you no longer need, you can choose to donate it to the organization. You put the food in a box with a Move For Hunger label, and we help deliver it to the food banks. It’s that simple!
However, there are other ways to help out too! For example, some middle school students in New Jersey held a food drive that helped bring in donations to Move For Hunger! It’s a great story that shows the difference that today’s youth can have on society. A post about the event was written by Margaret Muller on the Move For Hunger blog and we’ve quoted an excerpt below:
Matawan-Aberdeen Middle School in Central New Jersey hosted a “Battle of the Classes” food drive this February.
Each class was challenged to see which could donate the most food and the winner was…the eighth grade with 904 pounds of food! In second place was the seventh grade, which collected 687 pounds of food; and in third, with 264 pounds, was the sixth graders.
The school collected 1,855 pounds of food in total, which is enough to provided more than 1,500 meals.
Crown Relocations of New York generously volunteered to pick up all of the donations and deliver them to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey.
More than 1 million people in New Jersey face hunger each day, including 1 in 6 children. Thank you to everyone at Matawan-Aberdeen Middle School and Crown Relocations of New York for your commitment to fighting hunger in the Garden State.
