Meet The Team

 Wasting food while millions of people go hungry is a tragedy.  Our team is working to create sustainable solutions…

We take joy in what we do and believe that a workspace should be fun, but we never lose sight of our mission or of the people we are trying to serve.

Adam Lowy
Executive Director/Founder

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 nearly 100 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 – 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 Awards for his commitment to creating social change. Adam was also honored in Forbes 30 Under 30 in the Food & Drink category in 2014.
