Hunger remains a major challenge in the United States, and yet 40% of food in this country goes to waste. Tons of produce never even makes it for sale because it’s not visually perfect. Hungry Harvest founder Evan Lutz believes it’s time to start eating ugly produce – and in turn, reduce food waste and stop hunger.

Evan is a Conscious Capitalism entrepreneur from Baltimore, MD. From an early age, he’s been passionate about business, food justice, and the Baltimore Ravens. He graduated from the University of Maryland in 2014, and started on a food-waste fighting journey called Hungry Harvest at the age of 21. He was recognized in 2016 as one of Baltimore’s ’40 under 40,’ and was featured on the ABC show Shark Tank, where he made a deal with Robert Herjavec.
