Real Life Heroes: Food For Free

By | Client Spotlight

a7692356-0321-4450-aba6-5c9595ca5c54In light of the fact that Thanksgiving is two weeks from today, we’ve decided to spotlight one of our clients who are doing amazing things with food. That client is Food for Free, an organization that rescues fresh food that, without being rescued, might have gone to waste, and delivers it to the local emergency food system. Pretty amazing, right?

Food for Free’s director, Sasha Purpura, explains Food for Free’s mission as this: “We take this problem that is food waste, and we turn it into a solution.” 501Partners worked with Food for Free to implement an in-vehicle Food Tracker, which is an app that integrates with Salesforce and allows the organization to keep track of the food they are receiving and distributing all on tablets in their trucks.

Food for Free is a great organization which rescues fresh food that might otherwise go to waste, and distributes it to those in need via the local emergency food system. During our Discovery process, a need for electronic food tracking was assessed. Because Food for Free is such a large organization, distributing more than 1 million pounds of food per year, the paper-based system they had long relied on was quickly becoming outdated. Our engagement with Food for Free resulted in the implementation of our Food Manager app. Now, Food for Free can track their food intake and distribution from mobile devices with real time roll-up into Salesforce.
