space EditorEditor’s note: Dear Friends, We often hear that it takes a village to raise a child. I feel that it also takes a village to raise an adult, and help each of us grow. The stories this week remind us of the strength of community — a Teacher visiting the grave of a student, a family helping refugees, and a husband and wife reaching out to a mother and a child at a train station. These everyday heroes all weave together in a way that helps strengthen the fabric of our communities. –Guri space

How One Woman's App is Feeding Thousands

We are not cisterns made for hoarding; we are channels made for sharing.

– Billy Graham –

How One Woman’s App is Feeding Thousands

Komal Ahmad was a student at UC Berkeley when she experienced a life-changing moment. She had just returned from summer training for the U.S. Navy when she met a homeless veteran on the sidewalk. He hadn’t eaten in three days. Yet, across the street, thousands of pounds of uneaten food was being thrown away by her school. This was unacceptable to Ahmad, so she did something about it. “Those who have and are wasting and those who need and are starving — and they’re both living quite literally right across the street from each other,” she told the New York Times. “That’s just ridiculous.” [Her efforts have grown] into Copia, a food redistribution app that has given away an estimated 600,000 pounds of food to 720,000 people in the Bay Area. { read more }
