Front Porch Food Drive - NATIONWIDE

ORGANIZATION: Move For Hunger

Move For Hunger

Move For Hunger’s Front Porch Food Drive is a contactless way to engage your local community, while maintaining social distancing measures. Move For Hunger provides all flyers, food collection bags, and transportation* to help support your local food bank (*depending on your location, amount of food collected and availability). The event can be done by families and friends together, as well as an employee engagement opportunity for companies.

Here’s how it works:

* Volunteers will receive flyers & collection bags to help support the event.
* Next, the flyers can be stapled onto the bags. All bags are distributed by volunteers around their local communities/neighborhoods.
* On a designated day & time, neighbors are encouraged to leave out food donations on their 'front porches.’ Volunteers will walk around the participating neighborhood(s) and collect the bags filled with donations that were left out.
* All bags collected can be then transported to the previously chosen food bank. Based on your location, amount of food collected and transportation volunteers' availability, Move For Hunger can assist with transportation of all the food to the food bank.
* Move For Hunger will provide the volunteers with the Hunger Fighting Hero Award Certificate, stating the impact and the number of pounds collected, as well as meals provided.

Mission Statement

Move For Hunger is a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger. We have mobilized the leaders of moving, relocation, and multi-family industries to provide their customers, clients, and residents with the opportunity to donate their food when they move. Members of Move For Hunger also organize community food drives, participate in awareness campaigns, and create employee engagement programs.
