Event Description

Ryan Devlin is a founder of one of the hottest and fastest growing social-impact brands in the nation, This Bar Saves Lives. He was recently profiled in The New York Times and named one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People In Business. Ryan is also a well-known television actor and host, having starred on hit shows Are You The One, Jane the Virgin, and Grey’s Anatomy to name a few. He started This Bar Saves Lives after seeing first-hand the need for emergency food aid abroad and wanting to do something about it. What began as an idea to help out one clinic in one country has exploded into a national phenomenon, with product now available at Starbucks, Whole Foods, Target and thousands of other locations. This Bar Saves Lives has donated enough food aid — more than 2.5 million packets across 7 countries — to help save the lives of more than 17,000 children.
