More About the Creator
Tavish Sharma, the designer and founder of Solve Hunger Corp, is an app developer, social entrepreneur, and high school senior at Libertyville High School who enjoys giving back to his community. From a young age, Tavish could never wrap his head around the idea of people around the world living without access to food. He always had plenty of food to eat and couldn't believe it wasn't a reality for everyone. As he grew up and learned about the shortage of food in areas around the world, he wanted to do more to solve this problem. Throughout the years, Tavish has loved volunteering at local organizations to give back to a community which has already given so much to him. During the first few months of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, he organized multiple food drives where he collected over 2000 pounds of food to aid the less fortunate areas in Lake County. These drives led him to want to contribute more to the solution of the hunger problem in not only his own state and city, but throughout the United States and beyond. Tavish aspires to use machine learning and artificial intelligence in the future to predict food shortages in communities across the country before they occur.
Recently, Tavish was named one of 25 Prudential Emerging Visionaries in their inaugural class of 2022 for creating Solve Hunger! Solve Hunger will additionally receive $5,000 in funding from Prudential Emerging Visionaries and Ashoka Changemakers.
