How much of an organisms mobility depends on its imperative to consume?
If you compare certain creatures, does diet/what they eat, contribute to their natural ability to be self-mobilizing?

None! Because if what you think were true all sessile organisms would starve.

Mobility is the ability to move
not the actual moving.
Probably you are thinking of the EXTENT of an organism's travel
that CAN be ONE influence
but not the major influence.
some of which certainly migrate for the sake of food and water
some of which migrate from food-rich regions primarily to MATE
often to a place that is SAFER (from predators or whatever) for mating and producing young, but is less food-abundant.
Also consider: a bird
need not be as hungry as a cow
to travel much farther than a cow.
It has the ability to travel much farther, much faster
and uses that to its advantage
and even to play (see: online video of a raven apparently playing)
whether or not it is hungry.
