Skilled volunteers, including those from Salesforce and Presidio, will help identify the best software solution for Backpack Weekend Food Program so that they can grow more efficiently.
BackPack Weekend Food Program (BWFP) provides healthy, non-perishable meals for students in Gaston County to take home on weekends during the school year- with over 100,000 meals served last year.
BWFP leadership reached out to Apparo for help with their inventory management system. They are currently using a custom-built system developed by a volunteer. With a small staff consisting of one full-time and three part-time employees, they are unable to update or change their current system internally and must rely on the volunteer. BWFP would like assistance identifying an affordable and easy to manage system that will allow for the collection, tracking, analysis, reporting and outcome measurements of their program as well as partner organization and student related information.
Apparo has matched them to skilled volunteers who will review BWFP’s current processes and determine the best software application to support their growing organization.
