Abstract

Hunger relief is an integral aspect of modern civilized societies. As the number of food insecure people grows, it becomes increasingly important to address the challenges faced by hunger relief organizations. Food pantries encounter many challenges because they have few available resources and are primarily run by volunteers. These challenges cause inefficiencies that bottleneck hunger relief efforts at the bottom of the hierarchy. The most appropriate response to these inefficiencies is an information management solution that automates the time-consuming and repetitive tasks performed by food pantry volunteers. This project seeks to understand the requirements for this solution and provide an acceptable implementation for the Burlington Community Food Pantry.
