The Crew


Tom Rohr: Founder. Tom has worked and lived in Northwest Arkansas for years. He is married to the lovely Therese Rohr and has three daughters. Having worked in the corporate sector for years, Tom is now turning his attention to solving some of the problems he sees here in his backyard. He aspires to make NWA not only a better place to live but he hopes to spread the innovative solutions to make this world a better place. Tom loves to meet, share, and collaborate - no idea or conversation is too small. Contact him today!

Michael Kraus: Project Manager. Michael specializes in sustainability, research, waste-solutions, and communication. He and his wife Rachel are new parents and together live out sustainability every day on their homestead in simple ways.  Michael dreams big and envisions a world where food-waste is no more. Contact Michael with questions about food waste collection, zero-waste events, or general inquiries.

Cindy Maas: Customer Service Manager. Cindy is a foodie; she recently graduated with her Culinary Arts and Food Studies degree from Brightwater and also runs a catering business. Needless to say, her teenage son eats well. Cindy is our Eco-Products specialist and can respond to any needs you have to get your restaurant, food truck, business, or event to zero-waste. Contact Cindy for Eco-Products quotes and questions.

Therese Rohr: Sales Support.  Therese comes to us with a background in journalism, as well as a smorgasbord of general admin abilities.  Or as she puts it, jack of a few trades, master of none.  Therese brings flexibility to the Food Loops table pursuing assorted and sundry assignments.  Happily married to Tom for 34 years, and as both a mother and grandmother, she’s all in when it comes to promoting our mission in the hopes one day soon, converting food waste into fertilizer becomes the norm.

Lucus DeBuhr: Route Manager.  Lucus is the friendly route manager, typically donning overalls and a huge smile. No one knows for sure what he is smiling about, but we think it's the simple joy for living. That's what happens when you are working to help the planet. Even when part of the job is getting blasted in the face with old meat, bones, and lime juice.
