For many of us, our cupboards are packed with boxes and cans of food – some of which we don’t eat before they expire. Before they go bad, why not clear out some space and donate those forgotten non-perishable goods to families who need them.

On Saturday, October 8, Move for Hunger is collaborating with Preferred Moving & Storage to collect non-perishable food donations for Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan.

Boo! For Hunger is no ordinary food drive – this is a fun-filled, Halloween-themed family event!

Local artist, Judy Alford, is providing hand-painted festive ceramic mugs and sculptures to be raffled off. Ticket prices? A few non-perishable food items. The more cans and boxes you bring, the greater your chances of winning one of these Halloween-themed mugs or the grand prize, a ceramic sculpture.

Especially for the kids – face painting!

Spiders, witches, bats, skeletons, pumpkins, candy corn and other favorites can adorn their delighted faces during this event for a $5 suggested donation to the Gleaners Food Bank. While your boxed and canned foods are greatly appreciated, monetary donations will support the Move for Hunger cause and educate the community about food insecurity.

Boo! For Hunger will be held at 29840 Harper, St. Clair Shores, MI from 10 AM to 4 PM on Saturday, October 8.

Can’t attend? Don’t fret – donations are currently being accepted by the Preferred Moving & Storage staff at our office: 42950 Executive Dr., Harrison Township, MI. Stop by weekdays 8 AM to 5 PM, and we’ll ensure your donations are delivered to the food bank. Contact Preferred Moving & Storage or visit for more information. Even if you can’t join the fun, you can enjoy the feeling of supporting your community and giving to those in need.

As a professional moving company and active supporter of our community, Preferred Moving & Storage is a long-time partner of Move For Hunger. We will be participating in the festivities and delivering the donated food items to Gleaners after the event. We hope to see you there!
