Sorensen Moving & Storage is hosting a Spread the Love food drive at both their Melbourne and Orlando locations from February 8-28, 2021. In partnership with Move for Hunger, Sorensen has committed to help facilitate over 5,000 pounds of food donations to local area food banks in 2021.
Donations can be made in-person from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Melbourne location at 950 W Eau Gallie Blvd. or at their Orlando location at 603 W Landstreet Rd Ste A. Spread the Love focuses on collecting peanut butter and jelly but all shelf-stable food donations are welcome.
“We’ve always been committed to our community. People are often throwing out food from their pantries when they move, so this partnership with Move for Hunger just makes sense,” said Scott Sorensen, CEO at Sorensen Moving & Storage. “We just want to give back in the best ways we can. This food drive and our efforts throughout the year could make a real impact on local families.”
Move For Hunger is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that mobilizes the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger. More than 40 million Americans are unsure of where or when they will find their next meal. An estimated 40% of all food produced in the United States each year is lost or wasted. In Florida alone, over 2.8 million people face food insecurity. Even throughout COVID-19, Move For Hunger had a breakthrough year donating 5 million pounds of food to those in need.
Sorensen Moving & Storage is a local leader in moving, storage, and logistics services. Family-owned since 1956, they rank among Central Florida’s top moving service providers with expanding commercial services nationwide. We have a longstanding tradition of residential moving in the Melbourne area. Sorensen was also recently awarded as the 2020 Business Champion of the Year by the Cocoa Beach Chamber of Commerce.
