Dana Gunders

Dana Gunders is CEO of ReFED, the country's only organization wholly dedicated to solving food waste. Deemed the "woman who helped start the waste-free movement" by Consumer Reports, Dana is a national expert and one of the first to bring to light just how much food is wasted across the country. For almost a decade, she was a senior scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). Some career highlights include authoring Waste Free Kitchen Handbook, launching the $100M+ Save the Food campaign, testifying in Congress, consulting to Google, and appearing on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and Science Friday. Her work has been covered by The New York Times, PBS Newshour, Wall Street Journal, CNN, NPR, Fox, and hundreds of other outlets. When not worrying about it professionally, she spends far too much time trying to get her two young children to eat broccoli stalks and throw less food on the floor. (Truckee, CA) @dgunders
