Lindsay chambers

Founder, Together We Thrive + Thrive Canteen

Before founding Together We Thrive and Thrive Canteen, Lindsay Chambers spent 16 years in the private sector gaining a diverse set of skills and experiences through her work as the founder of a national beverage brand, interior designer, property developer, and avocado and citrus farmer.  Over that same period, she developed a passion for tackling the problem of food insecurity in the United States, volunteering at food banks across the nation and hand-delivering over 2000 meals to the unhoused.

In 2023, after seeing how the pandemic had left an increasing number of Americans unable to afford even their most basic needs, Lindsay decided to close down all of her for-profit businesses and launched Together We Thrive, which provides clean water and healthy food to those in need. To fund these efforts, Lindsay leveraged her background in the beverage industry to launch Thrive Canteen, an aluminum-bottled water company that donates 100% of its profits to Together We Thrive.

Lindsay’s previous experience includes founding an organic sparkling water brand with ingredients sourced from small farms like the one she operated in Ojai, CA. Launched in 2020 just prior to the pandemic, Chambers used a portion of her company’s proceeds to feed frontline workers in Los Angeles and donated 20,000 cans to medical workers in hospitals hit hardest by the coronavirus. Earlier in her career, she worked as a real estate developer and interior designer in California, where she sold over $100 million in homes and was named as one of “today’s most talented designers” by USA Today.  She was a finalist for HGTV’s Designer of the Year for 2023, and her work has been featured in numerous publications including Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Luxe Magazine, Elle Decor, Better Homes & Gardens, The San Francisco Chronicle and The New York Times.

Lindsay graduated with an M.A. from Stanford University and a B.A. from Wake Forest University. She received Wake Forest’s Excellence in Entrepreneurship Award in 2017 and recently served on their board of trustees.

Lindsay’s work for Together We Thrive is pro bono; She does not receive a salary from the organization.

Peter Deneen

Peter Deneen

Emergency Disaster Response Team Lead, Thrive Clean Water Lab

Peter and Thrive founder, Lindsay Chambers, met in 2017 in the aftermath of the Thomas Fire disaster in Ojai, California. Peter was home for the holidays when the largest fire in the state’s history ignited a few miles upwind of his family’s home. After more than 1,000 structures burned to the ground, Peter and some neighbors got to work supporting stricken residents. Lindsay was a key ally in his effort, so years later, when Lindsay began her Thrive Canteen non-profit to support disaster relief efforts with clean water, she knew who to call.

Peter’s wide-ranging education, training, and experience prepared him well for his role as Thrive’s disaster response lead. He graduated with a BS from the US Coast Guard Academy and an MA in Climate and Society from Columbia University, where he focused his graduate research projects on enhancing the resilience of watersheds in the West. In his 12-year career as a Coast Guard officer, Peter specialized in high seas narcotics interdiction, piracy, and incident command, as well as a Department of Defense-certified Spanish translator.

Today, Peter is an award-winning journalist, high school teacher, and varsity girls soccer coach; a meditation instructor for veterans, and is First Aid and CPR-qualified. He holds a certificate in permaculture design, is a board member of the Keep the Sespe Wild Committee, and a strategic advisor to Tierra Sol Institute for Art + Climate Resiliency. Peter has endured several major disasters, is an ultra marathoner, a sourdough expert, and he recently saved a dog from the jaws of a mountain lion.
