Evan Lutz is the CEO and co-founder of Hungry Harvest, an organization with the mission to eliminate food waste while providing access to affordable, nutritious food to those who live in food insecurity.

Starting the company during his senior year at the University of Maryland, Evan and Hungry Harvest have since made a deal with Robert Herjavec on Shark Tank, built a team of over 80 people, spread across 9 states, reduced over 20 million pounds of food from going to the landfill, and provided access to over 1.3 million pounds of produce through reduced-cost markets and donations to people in need.
