Hungry for Change: Ending Food Waste


Jasmine Crowe-Houston

Join us during Duke's Family Weekend to hear from Jasmine Crowe-Houston, social entrepreneur, TED speaker, and founder and CEO of Goodr! From 6-7pm there will be a reception at the Bryan Center's: The Landing, followed by a keynote and moderated Q&A in Reynold's Theater from 7-8pm where Jasmine will explain how she built a tech company to solve two of the world's biggest problems: hunger and food waste. She will discuss the importance of partnerships as she highlights Goodr's clients and their impact and shares her insights from leading a social impact company. Jasmine will also explain why there is a strong need for policy innovation to drive social change and her solutions to how we solve old problems -- it's time to make a change! Crowe-Houston will speak at Duke as part of the Terry Sanford Lecture Series. Endowed by the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust, this prestigious lecture is open to the public and the entire Duke University campus. The lecture series intends to promote engaged and enlightened leadership. The lectures are held in honor of the late Terry Sanford, a bold leader who served as North Carolina governor, U.S. senator, president of Duke University, and founder of the Sanford School of Public Policy. Event partners include the Sanford School of Public Policy, Duke Family Weekend, Sanford World Food Policy Program and the Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability.
