PantryTrak is an online system that replaces The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) Eligibility To Take Food Home paper form and simplifies the client registration process. PantryTrak will:
- Reduce client intake time
- Minimize paperwork
- Generate your monthly report in seconds
- Provide comprehensive, automated reporting
As part of the system, PantryTrak can collect additional statistics outside of the information on the traditional TEFAP forms. PantryTrak contains a section that stores demographic information such as race and ethnicity, housing information, and military service. PantryTrak will generate reports that document the family makeup, gender, and age of clients. The system also gathers data about the zip codes and counties of the clients being served in a partner agency. These reports are customizable and can capture different timeframes and events.
PantryTrak is free to use and does not require software installation and updates. The only requirements are a stable internet connection and a device capable of accessing the internet. In order to begin using PantryTrak, at least one person from a partner agency must attend PantryTrak training from a Foodbank staff member. After training, a PantryTrak account will be opened for the partner agency.
