Fact: 1.9 million people in the greater Mid-Hudson Valley area live on incomes that put them at risk of hunger. Forty-two percent of those in need are children. With times getting tighter these numbers are dramatically increasing. Thousands in our community need your help.
As you are aware, many people throw out a good deal of “stuff” when they move. Unfortunately a lot of this “stuff” is food that can be delivered to a family in need. That’s why Clancy Relocation & Logistics has teamed up with Move For Hunger to support Putnam CAP (Community Action Program) Food Pantry.
Please set aside any unopened, non-perishable food items before your move and Clancy Relocation & Logistics will deliver the food to the Putnam Community Action Program Food Pantry.
Move For Hunger is a non-profit organization that works with the relocation industry to support the efforts of local food banks. Your donations will directly impact thousands of families living right here in the Hudson Valley area. Clancy Relocation & Logistics is grateful for your business and truly thankful for your generosity.

Where do the hunger stats come from?
According to Move For Hunger, the 1.9 Million came from adding up the stats from the Map the Meal Gap study completed by Feeding America each year. It is surprising how many people are in need right in our own back yard. Here are break downs of some of the counties in the greater Mid-Hudson Valley area:
