How did Kristen start a thriving company that is bringing healthy meals to schools?

While she was in business school, Kirsten Tobey started a revolution. In a fight against childhood obesity and with a goal to set students up for success, she sought to redefine school lunches. Kirsten and Kristin Richmond co-founded Revolution Foods, which has grown from an MBA project into a thriving business that employs over 1500 people who serve over 3 million healthy meals to schools and communities every week. Throughout the country, but especially in low-income areas, access to high-quality, healthy food is limited. Student inspired and chef-crafted, Revolution Foods provides affordable and nutritious breakfasts, lunches, after-school snacks, and suppers that also taste good. Today, Kirsten shares her founding story -from running pilots to getting funding to starting a family – fueled by a passion of building lifelong healthy eaters.

“The World-Changing Women Summit was the most extraordinary, inspiring, and transformative gathering I have attended in my life. To be in the company of such powerful, authentic women with such a thoughtful agenda and curated content was game-changing for me as a professional and a person.”

Attendees connect in small groups while artists from Round Table Companies create a wall covered in answers to the question “In What Ways Are You A World-Changing Woman”?

“The World-Changning Women’s Summit is an intimate and invigorating space of ethnically diverse women entrepreneurs, ready to engage and lift each other higher in growth. I am still connected to many of these warrior women, many of whom are angel investors, and we are building relationships and sharing resources”

Powerful, relevant and inspirational, this event is a must for every conscious business builder!”
