  • Gary Oppenheimer has experience with starting his own initiative to feed the hungry and end food waste. He is the founder of AmpleHarvest.org which has been recognized and highlighted by no other than former First Lady Michelle Obama. In other words: He already has the solutions!

Speaker Gary Oppenheimer has won many awards for his many initiatives and acts in preventing food waste and feeding the hungry. He is a nationally recognized game changer and has participated in panel debates and even delivered two Ted Talks. Gary became a Master Gardener after buying his own home in the early 2000’s, and he quickly found a passion for gardening and growing food. Gary went on to become an environmental commissioner and director of a community garden and his interest for the environment and food waste grew.

Gary Oppenheimer founded AmpleHarvest.org after seeing the increasing hunger problem in America and seeing the amount of wasted food in people’s gardens. AmpleHarvest.org is an initiative that aims to make it easier for garden owners to donate excess harvest and thereby feed one out of six Americans. Gary has since inspired millions with his initiative and continues to believe that the smallest things can make the biggest difference. World hunger and food waste are serious issues but together we can and should make a difference. As a speaker Gary Oppenheimer is inspiring and informative. His talks are very eye-opening and audiences are left with the sensation of wanting to join the movement and make America and the world better. Below are examples of Gary’s keynote topics.
