|Project Summary||Project Information|
The FoodShare Center is a program that improves food insecurity on campus by providing free food to students in need. Frozen, chilled, and shelf food are donated by on-campus and off-campus organizations and individuals. The FoodShare is staffed mostly by volunteers. There are several key processes at the FoodShare Center that are manual, and include some tedious and or inefficient movements. There are also some situations that require volunteers to be away from their primary desk, which can leave them feeling insecure.
The goal of this project is to analyze the current process to identify opportunities for improvement. The main areas of focus are tracking demand rates, having real-time knowledge of supply, and reducing the effort required for manual tasks. The desired end result of this project is an efficient inventory management system and a set of improved processes that allow the FoodShare Center to meet the demand of students at RIT who need its services. The inventory management system must meet all regulatory requirements, be usable by the current volunteers / workers, and be workable in the current building.
