Food-Lover Wins $1,000 and More

MOUNTAIN LAKES, NJ (July 29, 2010) – When Hungry-Man® Dinners and Entrées asked for “The Hungry-Man” to step forward and prove himself, hundreds of people sent in laundry lists of favorite foods, what they love about food and photos of themselves enjoying that food. Only 42-year-old Joshua Ives of Sturbridge, MA, however, proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is, in fact, The Hungry-Man.

The father of two, a visual merchandiser for an outdoor clothing company, said in his entry, “I love food more than anyone else I know. From meatloaf to duck confit, if it tastes good, I’m eating it. I work hard and I play hard—and I need to eat heartily to satisfy my lust for life. Sometimes I can hardly wait for my Hungry-Man dinner to come out of the oven before I need to sink my teeth into it!”

As the winner of the “I Am The Hungry-Man” contest, Joshua will receive a $1,000 cash prize, will become Hungry-Man’s official “Dude Food Consultant” for one year and will star in a web video on the Hungry-Man website. 10 runners-up each received $50 and all entrants received coupons for free Hungry-Man Dinners and Entrées.
