Jasmine Crowe is an award-winning social entrepreneur, TED Speaker, and leader who is working to make the world a better place one cause at a time. In 2017, after years of feeding people experiencing homelessness from her own kitchen, she launched Goodr, a sustainable waste management company that leverages technology to combat hunger and reduce food waste. She has been featured on CNBC, Oprah Magazine, Inc., Forbes, Fast Company, the NY Times, and was named by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the top 100 influential female founders.

Under her direction, Goodr has redirected over 12 million pounds of surplus food from restaurants, event centers, airports, and businesses to the millions of people who are food insecure. Goodr clients include SAP, Turner Broadcasting, Hartsfield Jackson Airport, Six Flags Over Georgia, and many more.

During this episode, you will hear Jasmine talk about:

  • What makes Goodr different from a food pantry
  • How Goodr works with large venues and local non-profits to distribute food to people who are food insecure
  • How Goodr pivoted its business during the pandemic
  • The free grocery store that Goodr launched inside of Ronald McNair Middle School in Atlanta, Georgia
  • What inspired her to write her brand new children’s book, Everybody Eats
