We're making hunger history

History goes a long way

At Copia™, we come to work everyday because we’re accelerating toward a once improbable, now certain future: A world without hunger. We call hunger the World’s Dumbest Problem because we know that hunger is not a scarcity problem, it’s a logistics problem. In a world with so much excess and so much abundance, there’s no reason we can’t feed every person on the planet.

Copia™ makes healthy food more accessible to people in the community by helping businesses redistribute high-quality excess food to feed people in need. Businesses use our technology platform to feed the community, save money, and reduce waste.

Together, we’re making hunger history.

Our Core Values

Hungry* for change

At our core, we know that hunger does not need to exist, especially when we waste three times more food than there are mouths to feed. This conviction propels our insatiable appetite to solve The World’s Dumbest Problem™.

*Sometimes hangry.

[Em]Powered by data

We don’t just have a dream to end hunger, we have a plan. A plan that’s legitimized by what we know is possible through data and technology. We’re constantly testing and advancing our products to meet the incredible potential of technology to reduce food waste and make hunger obsolete.

Connecting the dots

There is an inextricable link between food waste and hunger. To solve hunger we don’t need more food, we need more collaboration and efficiency to connect those with excess to those who need it. We’re connecting a diverse set of stakeholders to one solution.

Elevating empathy

We believe in the people and communities we serve. For us, donating food isn’t about crossing off a moral checklist and handing out canned tuna or half-eaten leftovers to help someone survive until their next meal. It’s about consistently and reliably delivering quality, healthy food that’s packaged beautifully and delivered with dignity so that the people we serve — and in turn, the broader community — can thrive.

Business at its best

We know that some of society’s most daunting issues — food waste and hunger — can no longer be addressed incrementally. Business affords what no other entity can: the resources to scale solutions for massive impact. We’re reshaping capitalism and its relationship with society, whereby business, the environment, and communities progress together, without compromise.
