At just 22 years old, Komal Ahmand set out to create an app called Copia, which connects businesses with excess food to communities in need.
Copia currently operates in the San Francisco Bay Area. Businesses sign up with the app and within minutes of a request, Copia will be there to take perishable food to people in need. Donations come from various places such as stadiums, arenas, grocery stores, and catering companies. Copia employs drivers, called Food Heroes, to transport and distribute the food to nonprofits around the city.
