FOOD and what to do with it before a move

Donate unused food before your moveFor obvious reasons food is one item that cannot be transported in a long-distance move. It will spoil during the move because of time and temperature control; also, it has the potential to create a mess. Just because it cannot be moved, does not mean that it should go to waste. Here are three solutions to prevent food waste before a move.

  • Prepare – 2 weeks before a big move look at what you have and plan meals accordingly.
  • Share – I am sure that friends, families and neighbours would be happy to take anything you cannot eat before you move.
  • Care – Donate food to your local charities.
