Food Bank Availability Notifications

Foodbanks are looking for ways to notify their key contacts when new food becomes available at a certain location. It is important to keep everyone up to date, but it can be challenging to contact this many people, and still keep their location in mind. This can be difficult for foodbank employees to manage manually, and can create some miscommunications within the process. It would be in their best interest to find a solution capable of letting regulars sign up on their own, sorting information automatically, and sending out notifications through a variety of channels. A digital solution would be perfect for this situation, as it can automatically handle all of these issues, and help the foodbanks contact their clients in a timely manner. 

Luckily, SimplyCast has created just that, with the Foodbank Availability Notification Solution. This use case leverages digital forms, automated communications, and dynamic sorting to improve how clients sign up for notifications and sort the recipients who want to receive them. This solution was created to help foodbanks keep clients informed on product availability, and provide them with an easier way of staying in the loop. By allowing regional sorting, those on the lists will only receive notifications that relate to their specific location, giving them the best chance to receive what they need. 

This is an easy 3 step solution that makes food availability notifications more efficient and effective for everyone.` 

The Process 

Foodbanks needed a simpler way to distribute products to their clients, and ensure they are notified when there is new availability. By choosing an automated system like this one, you are eliminating any additional work for staff, and allowing information to be shared quickly and be tailored to each person’s specific needs. We have identified 3 key steps that will help foodbanks and their clients achieve this outcome. 

Simple Sign-up 

A digital form is created and made available online. This is accessible through either a QR code or by texting a code to a mobile number. On this form, clients can specify which locations they want to receive notifications from, or even what specific services they are interested in. 

Automatic Sorting 

Once the form has been filled out by the client, they will automatically be sorted into different categories that match the locations they chose in the previous step. Notifications will be sent out accordingly and can be provided depending on a service that the client chose, as well as the location. 

Preferred Notifications 

When the client fills out the sign-up form, they can indicate how they want to receive notifications. For example, they can choose between emails, SMS messages, or even a phone call. This ensures everyone is being contacted in the best way for their personal needs, and aren’t missing important updates.
