Food insecurity affects about a quarter of the world's population and more than 80 percent of US food banks are serving more people now than they did a year ago. How can we apply technology towards these challenges?

See four apps addressing food insecurity in action during this Public Good App House event. Explore solutions for volunteer scheduling, distribution, route planning, and managing inventory.


Jersey Cares app by MilkCrate

Learn how MilkCrate and Jersey Cares launched an app in three weeks to help volunteers deliver groceries to seniors during COVID while saving Jersey Cares $40,000 in staff time per year.

P2 from Primarius

Manage your foodbank with P2, a web-based platform with tools to help you efficiently manage your operations. P2 gives you a flexible and integrated solution to extend your capabilities beyond your warehouse.

HelpAction by NonProfit Exchange

HelpAction connects people in critical need with volunteers to provide assistance and free delivery of essential items. Discover how HelpAction addresses emergency food accessibility for the homebound and developed a new way for communities to volunteer.


OptimoRoute plans and optimizes hundreds of orders with multiple variables, for multiple drivers at once. Super-efficient routing is then sent to drivers' mobile app where they can navigate, get updates, complete orders, get proof of delivery and have their arrival time communicated to end customers.
