Food and Climate with Chef Nick DiGiovanni

Nick DiGiovanni, with over 5 million TikTok followers and more than 260 million monthly views, is one of TikTok’s top U.S. food creators. The youngest-ever finalist on Gordon Ramsay’s MasterChef, finishing third during Season 10, the Harvard graduate (2019) created the first food major at Harvard, called Food & Climate, to figure out ways to address the environmental crisis through food. This major, developed with help from a professor in chemical engineering, and his thesis, working closely with author Michael Pollan, where he analyzed data on carbon emissions in 36 global restaurants, set him on his current path.

His interests led to the startup of Voodles, backed by Harvard’s Innovation Lab, that would help revolutionize the way kids eat vegetables. The veggie-based pasta is organic certified, kosher, gluten free, vegan & non-GMO and available online. “At Harvard, I learned a lot about drive, sticking with your gut, and going for something until you get what you’re working for,” he said.
