“Move For Hunger turned a wonderfully simple idea into an opportunity to help our community,” said Chris Hawley, co-owner of Little Guys Movers.

San Marcos, TX – Little Guys Movers, a leading Texas moving company, is committed to fighting hunger in its community by partnering with national hunger relief organization Move For Hunger.

As part of their national network, Little Guys Movers joins the Move For Hunger movers who have delivered more than 8 million pounds of groceries to local food banks in the US and Canada to date.

More than 4.3 million people are food insecure in Texas, and one in five children in the state goes to bed hungry every night, according to Move For Hunger. Realizing the urgency of their neighbors’ needs, Little Guys Movers joined Move For Hunger to continue the fight against hunger and spread awareness of the growing need in the United States.

When people move, they often throw away a lot of “stuff”. Unfortunately, much of it is food that could be shared with a family in need. Little Guys Movers will now collect this food from their customers and deliver it directly to the Hays County Food Bank. The service is free for customers and makes every step an opportunity to change something.

“Move For Hunger turned a wonderfully simple idea into an opportunity to help our community,” said Chris Hawley, co-owner of Little Guys Movers. “When you pack up your pantry, don’t throw it away. Let’s make your cargo lighter and give it to people who can really use it. “

Moving day isn’t the only way to donate groceries, however: the local Little Guys office will serve as the on-going drop off point for cans and non-perishable items.

Community members can bring merchandise to 2260 S Interstate Highway 35, Ste 203, Monday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Little Guys Movers will make sure they get to the local grocery bank safely.
