Founder & Executive Director
New Jersey native, Springsteen fan, and ASU Sun Devil for life, Adam founded Move For Hunger in the summer of 2009. Adam’s family has owned a moving company in New Jersey for over 90 years (dating back to Great-Grandpa Lowy). After years of seeing so much food wasted when people move, Adam decided to take action.
When he’s not working, thinking, and talking about Move For Hunger, you can probably find Adam lying on the beach or sitting at the piano jamming with friends. His passion for helping others is contagious. Feel free to reach out - I’m sure he’d love to talk to you!
As for the serious stuff: Adam proudly represents the New York City Hub of the World Economic Forum's Global Shapers Community. In 2011 he became a Bluhm/Helfand Social Innovation Fellow and was honored at the VH1 Do Something Awardsfor his commitment to creating social change.
Director of Operations
Gavin is also a New Jersey native and darn proud of it! He graduated from the University of Maryland's Smith School of Business with a BS in Marketing. Gavin has served as Move For Hunger's Director of Operations since August 2010. He has been an avid surfer for most of his life and also enjoys snowboarding and taking care of business. When he's not fighting hunger, Gavin can be found at a local beach or keeping busy with his latest DIY project.
Jason graduated from the College of New Jersey in 2009 with a BA in English. After scouring the globe in search of waves, he settled down as a freelance content and copy-writer on the Jersey Shore. Following a disastrous attempt at world domination, Jason set his sights at slightly smaller, more attainable goals--like helping Adam and Gavin manage the burgeoning public relations and communications responsibilities for Move For Hunger. When not at the office hammering away on his keyboard, Jason enjoys traveling, reading and teaching himself music.
Real Estate Program Director
Max was born and raised on the Jersey Shore (not anything like the show) and recently graduated from Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, CT in 2010. After starting his own entertainment and events company in college, Max entered the corporate world doing marketing for a large entertainment company. Max decided to dedicate his time to something more fulfilling: Move For Hunger. When Max isn't working you can find him enjoying everything the shore has to offer.
Alex is a South Jersey Girl! Originally from Ocean City, she graduated with a BA in History from Rutgers-Newark in 2008 and knew she was destined for a career in which she would be able to help others. A life-long soccer player, she is excited to be a member of the Move For Hunger Team. When she is not in the office helping the guys, Alex loves traveling and spending time with her two dogs, Vegas and Lucy.
Emily is the newest member of the MFH team and is the only staff member residing on the west coast. A Southern California native, Emily has spent the last 15 years running races from 5k to marathon distance. Her experience also extends to the endurance industry, by working for the San Diego Running Institute and Competitor Group as a charity manager and writer for Women's Running Magazine. An adventurous trail runner, Emily now prefers the dirt to the pavement, despite her knack for tripping. When she's not running in the mountains or with her dog Rio, she's with her two daughters and enjoys reading, writing and yoga.
Kristy graduated from the University of Delaware with a BA in Mass Media Communications. After serving as the Executive Director of a nonprofit in Long Beach Island, Kristy moved slightly north to join the Move For Hunger team in January of 2014. She is dedicated to the cause and we look forward to her helping Move For Hunger to grow even bigger and better (if that's even possible, we're pretty darn cool already). When she is not knee deep in writing a grant or traveling to meetings, you can most likely find Kristy paddle boarding on the Barnegat Bay or attempting to perfect a yoga handstand.
