Digitizing Access to Food
Barriers exist within the food assistance ecosystem that keep people from easily getting the food they need. Many food pantries do not have an online presence, and many online resources have inaccurate or incomplete information. For those looking for food, it can be confusing to navigate and hard to know what to trust.
The Vivery network of food banks, pantries and other food resources, and our innovative digital tools, provide centralized and up-to-date information to boost connections between food resources and the people they serve.
By equalizing digital access to food, neighbors can get food that meets their needs, when they need it, close to home.
Our work with Greater Chicago Food Depository
To address food access at a regional level, we are building strong partnerships with food banks. Vivery provides a way for food banks to amplify their impact through technology that provides detailed analytics and insights to improve their decision-making, and centralized pantry information to keep location and program details accurate and up to date.
The Greater Chicago Food Depository manages a network of over 300 food pantries. They have been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic and beyond to keep their pantries open, stocked with food, and responding to the needs of the community.
Our work in the Austin Community
We are dedicated to empowering and strengthening pantries by providing easy-to-use technology solutions that simplifies their daily operations. Our goal is to amplify their ability to serve their clients without the need for a large technology budget or team.
We are currently piloting our solution in the Austin community using Open Shelf as the site for individuals to find a pantry that meets their needs. By partnering with pantries, emergency food providers, and partners, we will collect learnings and feedback that will inform future technology updates.
We are committed to understanding the challenges for food pantries and individuals and learn what the community needs most.
