Food Aid Project’s nonprofit services help food banks do more with less
Food Aid Project gives nonprofit food aid organizations access to a powerful online software system that makes it faster and easier to buy bulk foods at better prices. Through Food Aid Project’s donor-funded tools and subsidies, food banks can buy more food with the same budget, enabling local, national and international programs to feed more hungry people.The proof is in the pintos
Using timely, accurate data from a beta version of Food Aid Project software, an Alabama food bank saved $6,000 on the purchase of a single truckload of pinto beans. That’s enough money saved to buy an additional 200,000 portions of bulk beans.
Helping food banks save time and money means fewer people go hungry. Plain and simple.
Food Aid Project generates extensive sets of delivered bulk-food prices using software that combines commodity prices collected directly from farmers with freight rates collected from multiple freight companies.
Food aid organizations utilizing our nonprofit services can then access these delivered prices 24/7 through an intuitive online system.
No waiting. No middleman. No bureaucracy. Food Aid Project’s online system saves food aid organizations countless hours of price collection and comparison and ensures they have the information necessary to buy bulk foods at the best prices available anywhere.
The system will also enable food aid organizations to centralize and standardize price collection from their established suppliers, creating efficiencies that save time and money.
Food Aid Project further extends the buying power of food aid organizations by raising funds to subsidize bulk food purchases.
We also partner with businesses in the agriculture and freight industries to provide reduced-price bulk food and shipping services to nonprofit food aid organizations.
In 2010, 48.8 million Americans—including 16.2 million children—lived in food insecure households: 14.5 % of households in the United States.
That’s more than every man, woman and child in California and New Jersey combined. That’s a lot of hungry people.Together, we can change that.
