Jasmine Crowe — Social Entrepreneur; Founder of Goodr.co

While driving through Atlanta in 2013, Jasmine Crowe saw that the homeless community suffered heavily from food insecurity. A passionate tech and social entrepreneur, Jasmine decided to do something about it by starting a formal pop-up dinner for the homeless called “Sunday Soul.” As the pop-up dinner gained popularity Jasmine set upon a larger mission: to re-direct businesses’ surplus food to the people who need it the most. In 2017, Goodr.co was launched to do just that.

Using the Goodr app, companies can signal that there is extra food ready to be collected and distributed. Goodr then provides the package and block-chain technology to process the transaction, and track where it was consumed.

In 2019, Goodr technology was used to collect and redistribute 100,000 pounds of food from Super Bowl LIII. The food was used to help 25 organizations throughout the Atlanta Metro area.
