Close School Alumni Teams Up With Mr. Beast, Unleashing $30 Million In Free Food

Evan Ehlers, a distinguished alumnus of the Close School and the visionary founder of Sharing Excess, kickstarted his groundbreaking venture right here on Drexel’s campus. In a remarkable collaboration, Evan has joined forces with Mr. Beast and Beast Philanthropy to generously give away millions of dollars in free food, establishing a new distribution center in Hunts Point, New York City. This strategic move aims to triple the volume of free meals distributed, surpassing the impact of the Philadelphia operation!

Congratulations to Sharing Excess as it embarks on a mission to amplify free food distribution, paving the way for a more food-secure and nourished world.
