Every day in America, they waste 3X more food than there are mouths to feed. It is not a lack of food that is the issue, but rather an ineffective distribution of that food. Hunger is not a scarcity problem, it's a logistics problem. For the first time ever, they can effectively donate prepared and highly perishable food to those who need it when they need it most. Copia is a for-profit company that has built technology allowing food donors (e.g., food management companies like corporate cafeterias, universities, hospitals, grocers, caterers etc.) to easily request pickups of their surplus food, have it matched, and safely delivered to non-profits in need. With Copia, partnering businesses can now seamlessly access significant tax savings, dramatically reduce food waste through data and analytics on surplus, and remove CO2 from the atmosphere, all while feeding the neediest in their community. We have saved nearly 2M pounds of edible food from ending up in the landfills and provided savings of over $14M for the businesses and nonprofits we serve. We operate nationwide and are on our way to feeding over 3 million people with great food that would have otherwise been wasted!
