Hunger is not a problem about food scarcity. It’s a problem of access, waste, and partnerships. Until now, major anchor institutions – such as hospitals and universities – and local human service organizations have been disconnected and without a way to efficiently connect large amounts of unused food to those who are going hungry. It seems like a simple idea but the complexity is enormous. Copia set out to change that through a new technology platform and most importantly, teaching us all how to think differently about creatively tackling a complex challenge like hunger.
