The biggest issue facing many city food pantries isn’t the lack of food – it’s the management of it. Each pantry often acts as an island, without a way to effectively communicate with others. So, without no management system to handle the flux of supply and demand that occurs each week, perfectly good food ends up going to waste.
To help fix this issue, we created a new, digital inventory tool that connects food pantries in any given area - enabling each manager to find the food they need and to give away the food they don’t - ensuring no food goes bad and every stomach stays good and full.
Posters – We put up posters in and around local pantries to encourage pantry managers to register at ProvisionPantry.org.
The App – Once registered, the pantry managers let others know what they need and what they have.
