The HUNGRY team (Shy Pahlevani, Jeff Grass and Eman Pahlevani) received the 2019 Moxie Award for Business Services.

Nearly 400 business leaders last week attended the Moxie Award ceremony and dinner to recognize boldness in business by growing businesses, nonprofits and associations in the Washington, D.C., area.
