About Move For HungerFCMMoveForHunger

As you are aware, many people throw out a good deal of “stuff” when they move. Unfortunately a lot of this “stuff” is food that can be delivered to a family in need. That’s why Five College Movers has teamed up with Move For Hunger to support The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Please set aside any unwanted, non-perishable food items before your move and Five College Movers will deliver the food to The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. (See How To Help below…) Move For Hunger is a non-profit organization that works with the relocation industry to support the efforts of local food banks. Your donations will directly impact families living right here in Western Massachusetts.
