In 2016, United Way of New York City (UWNYC) and City Harvest worked in partnership with other members of the NYC Food Assistance Collaborative to develop and implement Plentiful to improve efficiency, equity and client dignity in the emergency food system. Plentiful is a free, easy-to-use, communications (app and text-based) and reservations platform for food pantries and the people they serve. Plentiful enables users to find food programs in their area, reserve a timeslot to pick up food, and receive updates on changing conditions at pantries, like closures due to inclement weather. In addition to developing Plentiful, the Collaborative also developed the supply gap metric to measure the amount of food a neighborhood needs to meet the needs of hungry or food insecure residents. With Plentiful’s pantry usage data, there is real-time data insights to help understand how to prioritize deliveries to meet current need. Unlike any existing product, Plentiful helps pantries track their individual client statistics while also enabling a new, much-needed level of client dignity and capacity analysis of the emergency food system by leveraging accessible, easy-to-use technology. Plentiful is also an efficient and accurate tool to collect outputs and client data that enables food pantries to achieve organizational efficiencies, such as reducing food waste, record keeping, and increasing service data captured.
