Jasmine Crowe is an award-winning social entrepreneur, TED Speaker, and leader who is working to make the world a better place. Jasmine’s goal is to foster change and create awareness about the leading socioeconomic issues and challenges of today, including poverty, food waste, and hunger.
In 2018 she became the 35th black woman to raise more than $1 Million in venture capital for her business. She has been featured on CNBC, Oprah Magazine, Inc., Forbes, Fast Co., NY Times, and named by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the top 100 influential female founders.
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.
Under her direction, Goodr has redirected over five million pounds of surplus food from restaurants, event centers, airports, and businesses to the millions of people who are food insecure. During the start of the pandemic, Goodr pivoted to food distribution by organizing pop-up grocery stores for the community as well as launching a grocery delivery program that provides weekly delivery to seniors to over 2,000 seniors.
Goodr clients include Hartsfield Jackson Airport, NBA, Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Public Schools, and many more. Since March of 2020, Goodr is responsible for providing over two million meals to people in need.
Jasmine recently wrote her first children’s book, Everybody Eats, which teaches youth about hunger, compassion, and empathy. A resident of Atlanta, GA, Jasmine is a new mom to her threemonth-old daughter Journey.
