Video: This Woman’s App has Helped Feed 660,000 Hungry

For Komal Ahmad, CEO of the benefit corporation Copia, excess food wastage is “the world’s dumbest problem.” After an unsuccessful attempt to deliver 500 sandwiches to a nonprofit, she was frustrated. That’s what motivated her to develop a mobile app that has helped feed more than 660,000 people by connecting companies with surplus food to those in need. Inspired by a lunch she had with a homeless man, Ahmad started by encouraging campus dining halls to donate excess food to local nonprofits. “Our goal is to reach over a million people fed,” Komal says.
