Travis Robinson
Travis Robinson

President

Travis has spent the last two decades as a business builder and impact investor in early stage innovative business and social enterprise. Nearly 13 years ago, he started a regional community magazine focused on healthy lifestyles that grew into what is now Elephant Journal, a top rated website for sustainability and social content. Travis has had a life long interest in societal health and wellness related issues, particularly as it relates to children. In 2011, Travis teamed up with Kimbal Musk to start The Kitchen Community, creating the Learning Garden and outreach campaigns to connect kids and parents to real food in schools and communities across the country. Designed as catalysts for community-wide behavioral improvements in childhood nutrition, socialization and student achievement, The Kitchen Community went from concept to national initiative in under two years. To accomplish this, Travis worked intimately and effectively with the highest levels of government, business, philanthropy and school districts to impact some of the most underserved communities in our country.
