Mayflower Reaches 1 Million Pounds of Food Donated Goal Ahead of Partnership Renewal With Move For Hunger

ST. LOUIS (Nov. 16, 2022) — Mayflower Transit, the nation’s most recognized and trusted moving company, announced today it has now donated more than one million pounds of food to Move For Hunger, and it will be renewing its partnership that will generate another 125,000+ meals for families in need for another year.   

As hunger continues to be a looming issue and the rise of food insecurity in America, the need to provide practical solutions is at the forefront.  

As a brand both rooted in the past and focused on the future, the Mayflower team understands the importance of giving back and fortifying the communities in which they serve. The Company has only been an official partner of Move For Hunger for a year, but its network of agents has now donated more than 1 million pounds of food, which is the equivalent of more than 800,000 meals, over the last several years. These meals help one and seven children who suffer from food deprivation and insecurity.

“We are proud of the philanthropic effort we have made over the years, but we are poised for even greater impact with the extension of our Move For Hunger partnership. Our philanthropic mission at Mayflower is to fortify the communities in which we serve through the elimination of food waste and fighting hunger. Our partnership with Move For Hunger allows us to increase food security in the communities that need it most.”

President and CEO Jason Mills said.

Move For Hunger continues to challenge agents, customers, and industry leaders to seek resourceful methods in donating non-perishable food. Mayflower has incorporated some of the practices to help customers establish their own pantries before and after their moving process. As well, these tools will help navigate the donation process.

Why Move For Hunger?
