Move for Hunger Helps the Hungry Here in New Jersey

I was at my friend Cat Cosentino’s CD release party this week in Asbury Park and while I was thrilled with Cat’s new CD “Box of Chocolates” and enjoyed her performance, I met a most unique individual that is truly making a difference not only here in New Jersey but across the country.

I met Adam Lowy, if the Lowy name sounds familiar that’s because he is related to the Lowy moving family known throughout New Jersey. Adam, a 20 something individual started a non-profit called Move for Hunger. He works closely with the transportation and moving industry to pack up non-perishable goods from people who are moving. The customer designates the food items for donation and Adam’s non-profit works with the moving company to pack up those needed food items and send them to local food banks. This costs the customer, and most of all the food banks nothing. The moving company donates the boxes, packs up the items and transports the food to the local food bank.

Move for Hunger is a brilliant way of getting much needed food to those that need it the most. It’s no secret that food banks here in New Jersey and all over the country are literally “starving” for more food and donations to support the monumental increase in need. Double digit increases in the number of people who now rely on food banks as their only source of food combined with decreased budgets available to the food banks make for a scary outlook. Adam Lowy and Move for Hunger are doing something to combat that problem. I applaud him and his goal of donating 500,000 pounds of food in 2012. Good luck Adam, you can support him and Move for Hunger at www.moveforhunger.org.
