    As the best moving company in the Portland area, Redefyne Moving strives to make life easier for all our clients and to help make a difference when and where we can.  We’re dedicated to doing all we can to help those in need, and we couldn’t be happier to work with one of the nation’s longest year-long service programs doing just that; Move For Hunger, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works with moving companies like Redefyne Moving, to collect non-perishable food items, and donate them to food banks all across North America.

    About Move For Hunger

    Thousands upon thousands of citizens in North America throw away “stuff” they don’t need -most often including a serviceable portion of non-perishable items- upon moving in order to make a move easier by cutting down to the bare necessities.  However, a lot of the food thrown away every move could be delivered to a family in need rather than tossed in the garbage.  That’s where Move For Hunger comes in!  Redefyne Moving has teamed up with Move For Hunter by offering to pick up any unwanted, non-perishable food items, pack everything up and deliver it to your local food bank to help families in need.

    In the first five years of Move For Hunger’s beginnings, they’ve been honored at the VH1 Do Something Awards, launched a real estate program, a running program, launched a corporate housing program, and managed to collect over 5 million pounds of food.  All within the first 5 years!  Fast forward to today, Spring 2019, they’re working with over 1,000 relocation companies across the USA and Canada and have delivered over 14 million pounds of food to families in need.

    Move For Hunger’s Mission

    Move For Hunger considers everyone when it comes to hunger.  Hunger is a huge problem in the United States, but not as easily seen as some of the other problems we face.  When most people consider hunger a problem, they think of starving children in a third-world country or homeless people throughout the nation.  But it’s more than just meets the eye.  In a country well known for its wealth and prosperity, 42 million American citizens struggle with the ever-growing issue of hunger every day.  It’s no longer just about a homeless man desperately searching for help to secure his next meal, but millions upon millions of people in America struggling to feed their families.

    As easy as it might be to miss, hunger is not exclusive to one specific demographic or specific to one place in the world- we’re surrounded by it, and the number of citizens in the US suffering from hunger grows substantially every day.  Hunger can affect everyone in numerous ways, as adults can tend to live shorter, less healthy, and less happy lives.  It can be the cause of obesity, vulnerability to mental illness, and even susceptibility to deadly diseases.  And while hunger can be terrible for adults, it’s even worse for children.  It can affect children in ways, as hunger and malnourishment are closely tied together.

    Without receiving proper nutrients in their critical years of growth, these children will be at a drastic disadvantage for the rest of their lives.  1 in 6 children goes to bed hungry each and every night.  In addition, children who suffer from hunger can have compromised immune systems, opening up the door to developing various health problems.  They do worse academically and socially and risk becoming so affected by these problems that recovery becomes impossible.

    Want To Make A Difference?

    For all these reasons and many more, Move For Hunger is determined to aid in this widespread problem throughout America and end the hunger for millions of citizens.  And with Redefyne Moving working alongside them, we’re one step closer to helping achieve this highly sought-after goal.  Next time you’re moving locations, consider donating your non-perishables to a food bank or letting us take care of that for you instead of throwing them away.  You never know who’s searching for help, and your donation could feed a family in need.

    Top Rated Moving Company

    Redefyne helped me with move-in labor in my new apartment, with three flights of stairs as the only means of access. They were prompt, professional, courteous and time-conscious. I was so happy with their services I happily recommended them to my boss at work, and would also do so for friends and family.

    Everything about this experience was amazing. They made me feel at ease and took on a very big task with our house. They were kind and wonderful to my children and understanding when I was dealing with a move and three kids. They took time to get to know my children and were very professional. I really enjoyed working with these guys.

    Thor, Ethan and Corey were on time and worked diligently for 9 3/4 hours. They carefully wrapped all the furniture and things not in boxes. They were professional and friendly and kind to our dog too. They worked fast and got everything we asked them to take. They even helped unload a hot tub!  We would highly recommend Redefyne to anyone and especially any of these 3 great guys!
