Software Selection + Implementation Guidance
The BackPack Weekend Food Program (BWFP) reached out to Apparo seeking help to identify the best database software solution to improve their efficiency and productivity.
Apparo matched BWFP to a volunteer team from American Tire Distributors and Wells Fargo who will: review data requirements, determine the best database application, define software requirements and initiate setup.

Improved analytics and data reporting:

BackPack Weekend Food Program provides food on the weekend to children in need so they can come to school more alert, better nourished and ready to learn.
At the end of each school week, students receive nonperishable, individually-portioned, nutritionally-balanced food to take home in their backpacks for the weekend when school meals are not available. Those students most likely to be hungry on the weekend are identified by school counselors, social workers, teachers, school nurses, and principals.
