NEPTUNE CITY, N.J. -- Mazza Recycling, an award-winning, family-owned and operated company specializing in waste & recycling services, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, teamed up to host their first annual truck pull on June 4, 2022 to raise awareness of hunger and how it impacts New Jersey's communities.

The family-friendly event was held at the Mazza Recycling Center in Tinton Falls where the public could partake in a day full of food, rides, vendors, and the opportunity to pull a moving truck in the fastest time at Mazza's facility. The event helped raise over $20,000 to fight hunger in New Jersey and nationwide which will provide more than 50,000 meals to those in need.

"All of our lines of business, and everything that we do at Mazza Recycling is based on cultivating a sustainable future for the next generation," said Jimmy Mazza, President & CEO, Mazza Recycling. "We are proud to partner with Move for Hunger and raise money for the cause of keeping unused food out of the landfill."

When participating in the signature event, the Truck Pull, teams of about 10 people pull a rope attached to a moving truck 100 feet across the finish line. First place was awarded to Mazza Muscle with a time of 18.36 seconds. Following in a close second was Party Perfect at 18.60 seconds and third place went to El Jefe Team (Mazza) at 18.70 seconds.

"This was one of the tightest Truck Pull competitions we have ever hosted," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "Congrats to our winners from Mazza, but more importantly a thank you to Mazza for being our hosts as well. It was such a great day filled with rides, laughter, and fun."

Lowy continued, "In New Jersey, over 700,000 people and 1 in 10 children don't know where their next meal is coming from. We are very appreciative of the support from an amazing partner in our local community. We had such an amazing time helping host the event and raising awareness."

Sponsors of the event included: Global Komatsu as the Glove Sponsor, Waste Management for sponsoring the games, Connor, Strong, & Buckelew for sponsoring the Ice Cream Truck, and Big G Movers who provided the truck to pull, Van Dyk, Withum, Campbell Petrie, Littler, Comerica Bank, and Norris McLaughlin.
