After touring a refugee camp in Liberia, Ryan was inspired to help the millions of children around the world suffering from malnutrition. So he co-founded the all-natural granola bar company, This Bar Saves Lives. For each bar sold, one packet of life-saving food is given to a child in need. Since the company launched in June 2013, they have donated over 650,000 packets — enough to help save over 4,000 lives. Ryan now serves as the CEO of This Bar Saves Lives, leading growth into major accounts such as Whole Foods, Target, Starbucks, Marriott hotels, Equinox Gyms, and Google offices across the country.
