Shark Tank is a favorite at my home - its fun to learn about these new company ideas and entertaining to see the 'sharks' interact with the entrepreneur trying to pitch their idea. Just recently, it was particularly enjoyable because one of the featured companies was Hungry Harvest.
Hungry Harvest has a mission to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to more people. They take produce that may not be 'perfect' and therefore not sold at a retail store and offers delivery directly to your home or office at a reasonable price. The great thing about their company is that they also practice a 1-for-1 system, so for each box of produce that is purchased and delivered, it donates an equal amount to a food bank.
This is special because MHRI was one of Hungry Harvest’s first customers – that’s right, every week the company delivers bags of produce to our associates who sign up for the service. It’s a great way to practice wellness, while also giving back to the community!
What is more, this homegrown company is full of employees from the area. The CEO and co-founder, Evan Lutz is a graduate of University of Maryland and son of an MHRI associate!
And in case you were wondering….Evan did great on the show and walked away with an investment from shark, Robert Herjavec!
