HUNGRY PEOPLE CAN BE FED.
COPIA is doing The Jesus-Thing!
Jesus said "Come and receive the kingdom that was prepared for you before the world was created. When I was hungry, you gave me something to eat, and when I was thirsty, you gave me something to drink. When I was a stranger, you welcomed me." Matthew 25:34-35
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, Food Heroes, to transport and distribute the food to nonprofits around the city.
Christ in Culture: Think about how your church could make a difference in your community by doing something similar to what COPIA is doing. Just take a moment and let God inspire and motivate you.
