As they prepare for long-distance moves, people often throw out a lot of things, including food. Rather than letting unopened, non-perishable food go to waste, we can collect that food and deliver it to local food banks. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, millions more Americans are relying on food banks for sustenance. The food banks of Middle Tennessee are working hard to feed those in need. Together, we can reduce food waste and hunger in our community‒one truckload at a time.
Move For Hunger is a national, non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger. They have mobilized 1,000 moving companies across the U.S. to participate.
Apex Moving + Storage has been dedicated to supporting their efforts since 2011. Here’s how it works:
We ask our moving customers to set aside any unopened, non-perishable food items that they'd like to donate.
During the move, we collect their donations and bring them back to our warehouse.
Every month, we pack up all of the donations and deliver them to Nashville-area food banks.
We’re passionate about this effort. Thanks to our customers, we’ve been able to help more and more people every year. We’re very proud that in 2019, Apex Moving + Storage was recognized as the #1 agent in the U.S. for Move for Hunger donations!
“Since joining in 2011 Apex Moving + Storage has collected over 1 MILLION pounds for those in need which is enough to feed over 833,000 people. In 2021 so far, they have collected an incredible 650,000 pounds of food alone. In 2019 they were named our Move For Hunger Mover of the Year for their tremendous service and dedication to our cause. They continue to be one of our most dedicated and outstanding moving companies. We cannot thank them enough for all of their volunteered time to transport food to those who need it most.” - Meghan Longo, Chief Operating Officer, Move for HungerAt Apex Moving + Storage, we’re dedicated to doing what we can to care for our neighbors in need.
