Move for Hunger


Adam is a 4th generation mover whose family has owned a moving company for nearly 100 years.  After seeing so much food go to waste, he launched Move For Hunger to mobilize moving & relocation companies to rescue food during the move.  To date, Move For Hunger has delivered over 31 million lbs of food to food banks – enough to provide more than 26 million meals to individuals in need.

Adam and his organization were most recently featured on the TODAY Show in 2021. Adam proudly represents the New York City Hub of the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers Community where he proudly represented the community at the Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos in 2015 – speaking on panels about sustainability.  In 2014, he was honored among Forbes 30 Under 30.  In 2011 he was honored at the VH1 Do Something Awards  and NBC American Giving Awards for his commitment to creating social change.

Adam appeared on a variety of morning news networks discussing the state of food insecurity in this country, and has given keynote talks at universities and corporations around the themes of Innovation, Sustainability, and Building A Movement.
