Volunteer Team: SoftwareONE
Loaves & Fishes is currently using an on premise server to house their files and documents. They have recently adopted O365 and reached out to Apparo for help utilizing SharePoint and OneDrive to store their documents. Apparo matched Loaves & Fishes with a volunteer team from SoftwareONE.
SoftwareONE will: gather pre-requisites for migration of data from an on-premise server, build/implement a SharePoint site, permissions, and develop/build a document file structure to support Loaves & Fishes business needs. They will also support Loaves & Fishes in the migration of files and documents.
This project will allow Loaves & Fishes to have their documents accessible in the cloud and provide for better collaboration and business efficiencies.
Nonprofit Agency Overview
Loaves & Fishes provides a week’s worth of nutritionally balanced groceries to individuals and families experiencing a short-term crisis through a network of 35 emergency food pantries located throughout Mecklenburg County.
Loaves & Fishes uses a Client Choice model which allows clients to select groceries their family is most likely to eat. Clients are able to choose a specified number of items in the areas of grains, proteins, vegetables, fruit, and dairy based on the size of the family. The number of choices is determined by a Registered Dietitian to ensure that enough food is available to create three meals a day for a week. It is important to the dignity of our clients to feel they have some control and requires them to invest some time in the process. It also allows for greater interaction between clients and volunteers.
