Incredible journeys that shape the present & future of food & beverage industry

Written by Hema Reddy / June 11th, 2015



Recent college grad Evan Lutz co-founded Hungry Harvest to solve a major problem in the US: surplus produce. Also laziness as the produce is delivered to your doorstep! This is edible produce that doesn’t make it to restaurants or the grocery stores.

But not for taste/quality reasons, but cosmetic ones: because it is “shaped” differently. Evan sheds light on:

  • The food wasting cultural norms in the United States
  • Community Service Agriculture (CSA) and the Hungry Harvest model
  • Breaking down the logistics of a fresh produce delivery service
  • Why we have a warped concept of what fruits and veggies should look like
  • Addressing social stigmas in the food space
  • Bonus 1: on the calming effect of L-theanine tea
  • Bonus 2: Evan and Matt predict the fate of Maryland Terps Men’s Basketball 2016
