She is the co-founder of Food Tank: The Food Think Tank, and founder of a small sustainable home goods company called the Apron Project. Before the launch of Food Tank, Gustafson founded The 30 Project, a campaign that has helped to change the conversation about the global food system by connecting hunger and obesity.
