Are you moving out of your apartment at the end of May?
Every year an estimated 6,000 Rutgers students move out of apartments in the Rutgers College area alone! Large quantities of much needed food is discarded during this move out event simply because it makes the moving process easier. We coordinate with Rutgers students to make it just as easy to play a role in alleviating hunger through the annual RUliving.com Move-Out Against Hunger Food Drive during the month of May.
We are asking you to help those in need by providing relief, in the month of May, through the collection of food that might otherwise be thrown away when you or your fellow housemates move out of your apartment. You can make a real difference in a person's life by taking a minute to donate your food items instead of discarding them.
Donate... Don't Discard! We have two options for your convenience:
- If you are an existing RUliving.com tenant and moving out at the end of your lease, simply leave Food Bank Approved items on your kitchen counter when you move out and we will deliver them to the Food Bank on your behalf... it's that easy!
- If you're not a tenant of RUliving.com, you can still make a meaningful contribution by leaving Food Bank Approved items on the front porch of any of our properties - From May 1st through May 31st - and we will make the delivery to the food bank on your
Real people in NJ need your help...
