The 30 Project launches in San Francisco with a simple mission: have dinner, change the world.
As often happens when one turns 30, Ellen Gustafson hit the major milestone and realized she wanted to do something more meaningful with her life. A co-founder, with Lauren Bush, of the successful FEED Project, which creates projects to help feed the world, she realized that she didn’t want to be providing food for hungry children 30 years from now. She wanted to help eliminate hunger altogether by then instead. So Gustafson started The 30 Project which aims “to be the table that brings the best people together to work towards creating a truly healthy and sustainable global food system.”
