"Paperwork wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for all the paper. And the work."
Fortunately, with FoodStar, you can eliminate both the paper and the work!
We are food pantry volunteers, so we know first-hand how much work goes into running a food pantry. We've used the card files, signature forms and tally sheets. Producing the monthly Agency reports took hours. We knew there had to be a better way. We needed computerized record keeping that was easy to use and produced fast, accurate reports.
With input from food pantry volunteers, area Food Banks and the TEFAP administrator for our state, we developed FoodStar software.
Here's how FoodStar transformed our food pantry record keeping:
- FoodStar provides a fast, streamlined check-in process. It's easier for the food pantry volunteer and more dignified for the families being served.
- It is a tool to ensure compliance with USDA regulations.
- FoodStar validates data entry on the front-end, which improves reporting accuracy.
- FoodStar is compatible with Topaz signature pads, providing paperless record keeping and minimizing administrative duties.
We know most food pantries are non-profit organizations, so we make it a priority to keep our software affordable.
We love being part of a food pantry program that provides such a valuable service to our community. FoodStar is our contribution to help those who work so hard to serve others.
