The goal of this project was to collaborate with Community Harvest Project (CHP) to comparatively analyze similar organizations, and to optimize operations in nutrition education, tracking produce distribution, managing partner relationships, volunteers, and community outreach. Through 15 interviews with similar nonprofit organizations, and four CHP staff interviews, we ascertained that CHP serves as a model for many organizations, however still has areas they wish to improve upon. Our team developed a number of recommendations largely focused on the expansion of CHP’s current working strategies rather than creating new programs. Our final deliverable involved giving our data to CHP in a presentable and usable manner.
