Give Us A Call. Shoot Us An Email. Invite Us To Dinner.

Adam Lowy

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. Adam was also honored in Forbes 30 Under 30 in the Food & Drink category in 2014.

Max Lowy

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.

Alexandra Marcus

Program Director

Alex is a South Jersey Girl! Originally from Ocean City, she graduated with a BA in History from Rutgers-Newark 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.

Kristy Redford

Development Director

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.

Dan Ratner

Director of Operations

Dan earned his official degree as a UConn grad. Compelled by a social adventure in India, he volunteered for a micro-finance institute (and fluctuated in weight from the tap water). From his time abroad, Dan knew he wanted to do work that mattered. This led him to the local foodbank which provided him with a dynamic understanding of hunger issues. Now an excited MFH member, Dan ensures that Move For Hunger events go smoothly, and is always in search of new creative ideas. You can find him frequenting eclectic movies & concerts, getting his hands dirty in the garden, or long-boarding down the Asbury boardwalk at high speeds.

Emily Cebulski

Team Captain

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.

Jason Taetsch

PR Director

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.

Dana Paslowski

Graphics Ninja

Dana graduated from Seton Hall University with a BA in Graphic Design and Advertising Art. Along with this degree, she minored in Art History, Fine Art, and received a Web Design Certificate. Throughout her junior and senior year she began interning with Move For Hunger & shortly after graduation joined the Move For Hunger team as the Graphics Guru. She is excited to be a part of the team as she helps bring the creative side of the Move For Hunger brand together. When not using Illustrator or Photoshop you can find Dana cruising on road trips, walking the boardwalk with her dog, or enjoying art museums.

Maura Boyan

Program Assistant

Maura just joined Team MFH in December 2014. She graduated from the University of Scranton in 2006 with a BA in Communications. She is originally from North Jersey and relocated to the Jersey Shore earlier this year. After years of commuting to NYC, she loves her new 10 minute commute – can’t beat that!! Prior to working at Move For Hunger Maura worked in Sales Operations for a NY Based IT Consulting Firm. This is her first experience working for a Non Profit Organization and she is enjoying the change of pace and the ability to do work that gives back to others. When she isn’t busy being a Jack of All Trades at MFH you can usually find her spending time with her nieces and nephews; Claire, Norah, Owen and James and being “Maura Poppins”
