Atlanta-Based Goodr Honored with the goBeyondProfit 2023 Champion Award

ATLANTA , June 01 /Businesswire/ - goBeyondProfit, a first-of-its-kind business leader initiative that inspires business generosity, announced it has honored Atlanta-based Goodr and their Founder and CEO, Jasmine Crowe-Houston, as this year’s first winner of the goBeyondProfit champion award.

Goodr and its CEO Jasmine Crowe-Houston were nominated and selected by fellow Georgia business leaders for their transformative business approach to fighting hunger and food waste. By leveraging technology and the power of logistics they offer businesses and municipalities a waste management solution that not only solves their food waste needs, but also tracks real-time environmental impact and delivers food to people who need it most.

“Early on I said that hunger wasn't an issue of scarcity, but it was a matter of logistics,” says Jasmine Crowe-Houston, “At Goodr we solve that logistics problem for companies and help them get perfectly good food to people who need it most. We make it simple and impactful for companies to join in the fight against hunger.”

Past award winners include Gas South, Creature Comforts Brewing, H.J. Russell & Company, Aflac, W&A Engineering, Cox Enterprises, Herschend Enterprises, Chick-fil-A, Signature FD, and Vector Global Logistics.

In an interview with goBeyondProfit, Jasmine Crowe-Houston shares candid reflections about her entrepreneurial journey from “Sunday Soul Suppers” to founding an award-winning business recognized by Fortune as a top fifty global company that is Changing the World. See the full interview here:

“Each goBeyondProfit Champion has a story of exceptional generosity,” said goBeyondProfit president, Megan McCamey, “What makes Goodr standout is their laser focus on developing an innovative, impactful business solution for the problem of food waste and hunger. With one-in-nine Georgians going hungry, companies like Goodr showcase how the power of business can solve our most pressing needs.”
