Over the past nine years, FEED has forged successful partnerships with companies such as Target, Disney, Madewell, Pottery Barn, Whole Foods, The Honest Company, west elm, Gap, Tory Burch, Birchbox, One King’s Lane, Rachel Roy, DKNY, Clarins, Links of London, Godiva and TOMS.

About Lauren Bush Lauren

Lauren Bush Lauren is the Founder and CEO of FEED, a social business whose mission is to "Create Good Products That Help FEED the World." In 2004, Lauren became the Honorary Student Spokesperson for the UN World Food Programme. In that role, she traveled to various countries and learned about the issues of hunger and poverty firsthand. Upon her return to the States, Lauren was inspired to create a consumer product that would engage people in the seemingly overwhelming fight to end world hunger. In 2005, she conceptualized the idea for FEED by designing the initial FEED 1 bag which, when purchased, feeds one child in school for one year.

In 2007, Lauren founded FEED. Every product sold has a measurable donation attached to it and, to date, the social business has been able to provide nearly 95 million meals globally through the WFP and Feeding America. FEED has also supported nutrition programs around the world, providing over 3.7 million children with Vitamin A supplements through the WFP and the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.

Additionally, FEED has forged successful partnerships with companies such as Target, Disney, Madewell, Pottery Barn, Whole Foods, The Honest Company, west elm, Gap, Tory Burch, Birchbox, One King’s Lane, Rachel Roy, DKNY, Clarins, Links of London, Godiva and TOMS.

For her work with FEED, Lauren was named to Fortune Magazine’s Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs in 2009 and Inc.’s 30 Under 30 in 2010. In 2014 Lauren was named one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Social Entrepreneurs and Crain’s 40 Under 40. In 2015, she was named a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader.

Lauren also routinely speaks at global conferences that focus on business, philanthropy and the issues of hunger and poverty. Examples include SXSW Interactive, Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy, Forbes Women, Women in the World, Atlantic Ideas, and Aspen Ideas.

Lauren was born in Denver, Colorado, and grew up in Houston, Texas. She graduated from Princeton University in 2006 with a B.A. in Anthropology and certificate in Photography. She now resides in New York City with her husband, David, and baby, James.
