Openly sharing ideas and strategies to challenge the tyranny of routine

Hi, I’m Robert Egger and i’m here to fuck shit up.

 
 
 

I’ve been working for change for 30 years, and time and time again I've seen valiant people and bold ideas fall by the wayside because of the tyranny of routine. That's why I'm now dedicating myself to using all my energy, love and knowledge to help bust through. If you want to explore the power of food to nourish AND liberate, I'll be there with you. If you're a young entrepreneur who wants advice, I'll help. If you want to talk policy changes, how we can start a new philanthropic revival or organize nonprofits to maximize their political rights, I'll join you.

Robert Egger no profits without nonprofits
 
 

Here’s what I bring…

I founded the D.C. Central Kitchen, the Campus Kitchen Project, and the L.A. Kitchen, which have collectively produced over 45 million meals and helped over 2,000 individuals attain jobs. In Washington, I was the Founding Chair of the Mayor's Commission on Nutrition, and Street Sense (Washington's homeless newspaper). In addition, I served on the Founding Boards of The World Central Kitchen, Kitchens for Good, and FoodChain - the National Network of Prepared Food Programs. I was also the Co-Convener of the first Nonprofit Congress and the Founder of the CFoward PAC, which worked to help elect people who ran, or valued nonprofits. I also wrote the award winning book, Begging for Change. I’m a proven and daring speaker and I’ve received dozens of awards over the years for my ideas and work, including being named a Point of Light, an Oprah Angel and a Washingtonian of the Year. I was also one of the only direct service providers to appear on the Nonprofit Times list of the Most Powerful & Influential Nonprofit Leaders from 2006-2009. And last but not least, I’m a 15-gallon blood donor with the American Red Cross.

So what are you waiting for?

Let's fuck shit up!
