Adam Lowy, 2022 Hall of Honor Recipient
Adam Lowy is a fourth-generation mover whose family has owned a moving company for nearly 100 years. After seeing large amounts of food go to waste during the moving process, he launched the organization Move For Hunger to mobilize moving and transportation companies to rescue food during the move. To date, Move For Hunger has delivered over 27 million pounds of food to food banks—enough to provide more than 23 million meals to individuals in need. Not only does Move For Hunger deliver real concrete relief to people in need but it also showcases how movers can make an impact in their local communities.
For his work, Adam has been recognized with a number of accolades already in his young career: In 2011, Adam was honored at the VH1 Do Something Awards and at the NBC American Giving Awards for his commitment to creating social change. In 2014, Adam was honored on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list. Adam proudly represented the New York City Hub of the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers Community at the Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos in 2015, speaking at panels focused on sustainability. Adam and his organization were most recently featured on the TODAY Show in 2021.
Adam has appeared on a variety of morning news networks discussing the state of food insecurity in the United States and has given many keynote talks at universities and corporations on the themes of innovation, sustainability, and corporate social responsibility.
