Food Bank Warehouses
Our Inventory Management Solution (IMS) is an online application used to manage the inventory of hunger relief warehouses by leveraging best practices from the for-profit world for on-demand inventory control—while being tailored to fit the specific needs and nomenclature of humanitarian relief in the nonprofit world.
Virtual Aid Drives
Virtual Aid Drive® is an online fundraising tool. It enables nonprofits to conduct fundraising campaigns while allowing food banks to create virtual food drives for donors, corporations, and individuals who can digitally submit donations. Donations can be expressed in terms of dollar increments or dollar equivalents for resources needed, e.g. blankets, food, school supplies, etc. This tool offers nonprofits a simple and effective way to achieve online fundraising while simultaneously educating the donor on the additional buying power their cash donation can make.
Feeding America Food Banks
Our partners at The Feeding America Network move the majority of food for U.S. hunger relief across the country each year using the SCM4Hunger platform. As the U.S.’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, Feeding America provides low-income individuals and families with the fuel to survive and even thrive. The solution we developed together includes customized online ordering, in-kind donations management, and online auction modules—called AgencyExpress™, DonorExpress™, and Choice™ respectively.
