MORRIS COUNTY — Colleagues at the Weichert Corporate Headquarters Campus and various sales offices recently completed 2.5-mile Fun Walks to help fight food insecurity. In all, 63 walkers hit the pavement with the miles walked converted into 481 meals.
Weichert’s Fun Walk was part of a companywide MOVE 2 Fight Hunger Challenge presented by Weichert Workforce Mobility and Nelson Westerberg. The Challenge supports Move for Hunger, a national nonprofit organization that aims to offer a sustainable solution to reduce food waste and feed the hungry.
“At Weichert, we have always stressed the importance of giving back to the communities where we live and work,” said Aram Minnetian, president of and COO of The Weichert Family of Companies. “It was great to see so many of our colleagues join together for a little exercise and camaraderie as we moved to fight hunger.”
The M2FH Challenge runs from June 1 through July 5. Colleagues can provide meals to feed the hungry by participating in any activity – from walking and running to cooking, dancing, or even reading a book. Their progress is tracked using atlasGO, a hybrid activity/social media app. The activities earn points that will be converted to meals at the end of the Challenge. The challenge goal is to earn 75,000 meals to support the cause.
Sales associates and colleagues at Weichert’s Rumson and Middletown sales offices participated in their own M2FH Challenge Fun Walks.
“We met at Popamora Point, which is a beautiful part of the Henry Hudson Trail in Atlantic Highlands,” said Christina Weiner, sales manager of Weichert’s Middletown office. “It was a great opportunity to enjoy nature and enjoy each other’s company away from the office while logging miles for meals to support a great cause.”
According to Move for Hunger, more than 42 million Americans face hunger every day, including 1 in 6 children. Meanwhile, 35 percent of the food produced in the United States every year is wasted. Move for Hunger’s network of socially responsible relocation companies provides its customers, clients, and residents with the opportunity to donate their food when they move. Members of Move for Hunger also volunteer to host/assist with community food drives, participate in cause marketing campaigns and create employee giving programs. Since 2009, Move for Hunger has delivered 26 million pounds to food-to-food banks across the United States and Canada — the equivalent of nearly 22 million meals.
