We met Max Lowy, Real Estate Program Director for Move For Hunger last month and knew that their mission was a perfect fit for our company and our agents. Move For Hunger is a non-profit organization that works with relocation companies across North America to pick up unwanted, unopened food from those who are relocating and deliver it to local food banks. To date, Move For Hunger is working with nearly 600 movers and 5500 Realtors in 47 states and has collected more than 2,400,000 pounds of food!
When asked about how real estate could help the Move For Hunger mission, Max said, “The opportunity for impact is incredible. Imagine if the industry truly put its full support behind this. We would do something that no hunger-relief organization has ever done before: create a sustainable, year-round program to address hunger in this country. If this is happening every day and can be supported by companies like ERA Real Estate , and state associations – then this will become the industry standard.”
ERA Central pledged our support on the spot and encouraged Move For Hunger to come the ERA IBC in Los Angeles to share their mission with ERA brokers worldwide. Max and Ben received a warm Team ERA welcome – we’re excited to be working with them to help New Jersey families in need put food on their tables.
