Food Bank of Alaska believes that no one deserves to be hungry.
Since 1979, we have been securing donated food for nonprofit agencies to distribute to hungry Alaskans.
Happy Moving Month!
It's National Moving Month! Each May, nearly 40 million people begin to plan their summer moves.
In fact, half of all yearly moves occur in the summer months alone. Food Bank of Alaska is proud
to highlight Move for Hunger, a great partner in the anti-hunger movement.
As you may be aware, many people throw out a good deal of “stuff” when they move. Unfortunately,
a lot of this “stuff” is food that could be delivered to a family in need rather than thrown
away. That’s where Move for Hunger comes in! …Moving? Find A Mover
who gives back! By teaming
up with relocation companies across the country, Move For Hunger is creating one of the nation’s
largest year-round service programs. Their movers offer to pick up the unwanted, non-perishable
food items from those who are moving and deliver it to their local food banks. This month, Sourdough
Transfer, a local Anchorage partner of Move for Hunger, helped to make transport food from local
post offices to Food Bank of Alaska after the NALC Stamp Out Hunger food drive.
