Rachna Govani has three full-time staff and one goal for the upcoming year: She wants Foodstand, the mobile app she created, to spread like wildfire. The 30-year-old hopes that by making it easy for people to share food-related news, research, tips and local events, Foodstand will deepen engagement within the food movement.
Govani likens Foodstand to a “new-age Chowhound or a Reddit, but with values.” The app allows users to view and filter trending topics, events and articles as well as take part in monthly campaigns that cover themes like food waste and cost.

“I think it's important to discuss the food behind the photo, the action behind the double tap,” says Govani.
