He is also the founder of Campus Kitchens Project and CForward. He founded the L.A. Kitchen in 2013 where he is currently CEO. Egger’s book on the nonprofit sector, Begging for Change: The Dollars and Sense of Making Nonprofits Responsive, Efficient and Rewarding For All, was published in 2004 by HarperCollins.
