Scottsdale, AZ (DATE) – MC Companies – a leading Real Estate Investment and Management Company, and Move For Hunger – anational hunger relief non-profit organization, announced a new partnership that will fight hunger and reduce food waste nationwide. With estimates showing that the number of Americans facing hunger in 2020 increased by 46% due to the Covid-19 pandemic – that’s 17 million more people – the collaborative efforts of MC Companies and Move For Hunger have never been more important than they are right now.
People throw away a lot of things when they move, including perfectly good food. Move For Hunger’s network of more than 1,000 moving companies, more than 1,500 multifamily apartment communities, and many of the world’s leading relocation management companies, volunteer to collect this unopened, non-perishable food and deliver it to their local food banks. To date, Move For Hunger’s network of relocation professionals and multifamily properties has collected and delivered more than 20 million pounds of food – providing 17 million meals – to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.
The partnership will enable MC Companies to support Move For Hunger’s food rescue programs and encourage their properties, associations, & vendors they work with to integrate the Move For Hunger model into the moving out process for residents. It will also provide the opportunity to continue to expand the Move For Hunger network: a robust community of engaged individuals that want to make a difference in the lives of others and have the resources available to create large scale change.
