FINCOR Construction, an East coast-based multifamily renovation company, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announced that they have renewed their partnership to reduce food waste and fight hunger in the United States.
Move For Hunger was founded in 2009 by Adam Lowy, and has provided more than 26 million pounds of food, equaling over 22 million meals, to food pantries and banks across the United States. Since the pandemic started, Move For Hunger has had to meet the growing need of food insecurity in the United States and Canada, where 42 million Americans and 1 in 8 Canadians struggle with hunger.
This is their second year of partnership, and FINCOR has provided more than 50,000 meals to food insecure communities throughout the United States. They’ve also helped with transporting donations to food banks, transferring more than 1,900 pounds of food in 2021.
“We partnered with Move For Hunger because we pride ourselves in giving back to the community,” said Michael Finn, President of Fincor Construction, Inc. “The morale of our nation has suffered and is suffering due to the global pandemic. Move For Hunger has allowed us to give back to the community to the people hit hardest. It was really a no-brainer to partner with Move For Hunger. Food waste is a travesty with so many people that go to bed hungry. Move For Hunger has made it easy to get perfectly good, non-perishable food into the hands of those who need it most.”
Move For Hunger has more than 1,000 moving companies as part of their mover network, with more than 4 million pounds of food, equaling over 3.5 million meals, collected and delivered by the program in 2021.
“Our partnership with FINCOR has been proven to be very beneficial,” said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. “They’ve demonstrated their dedication to the fight against hunger through their partnership, and we’re looking forward to what 2022 has in store!”
Through the support of partners like FINCOR Construction, Move For Hunger can continue to make a difference throughout the United States and Canada at such a pivotal point in time.
