Social Entrepreneur Liberty Huang Fights Hunger With Boobs4Food

When I first heard about Boobs4Food, I wondered if it was an organization for women’s rights or breast cancer awareness. Not so.

The name Boobs4Food makes perfect sense when co-founder Liberty Huang explains the meaning behind it: “We wanted to have a name that reflected our personality … we want to make volunteering fun.” Besides, as Huang says, “Boobs are where you get your first meal.”

Boobs4Food is helping people get more meals by bringing together chefs and food bloggers with organizations that fight hunger. This concept works well for the nonprofit because food itself has a way of bringing people together. Huang has fond memories of cooking and sharing meals with her own family growing up, and now she is funneling that passion toward helping others.

In this video, you can watch Huang discuss her passion, along with her favorite food app and what she hopes to see from new food startups in the future.
