New Software Improves Efficiency

Many food pantries still keep critical records on pen and paper. CORA enlisted the help tech savvy volunteers to create a simple but effective excel based program to track client data – just in time for the tremendous increases we have seen in the last 4 to 5 years. After working out the kinks, CORA was invited by the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC to present the program to other affiliate agencies, and we subsequently offered the software free to these colleagues in the fight against hunger giving them a cost effective way to improve their data collection and retention using a program (MS Excel) that most computers have as standard software.

CORA received the 2011-2012 Award of Excellence from the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.
