New to PantryTrak

Dec 22, 2014

PantryTrak is now being used at 94 pantries in our service area. This is more than 40 percent of pantries in our network using the system! PantryTrak allows for greater accuracy in reporting, and eliminates the use of the paper TEFAP form that is to be completed by clients at grocery distributions. In addition to the monthly reporting and elimination of the paper TEFAP form, the system allows agencies to set appointments, collect additional service information, and connects clients to other resources, such as SNAP assistance.

Felicia Fullerton, the Foodbank’s Americorps VISTA, has been hard at work creating a resource library for current users of the system, which will walk agencies through how to use special features of the system.

Special Features include:

  • History Look Up: Agencies can now access clients records to edit and fix mistakes, without having to open a new client record.
  • E-Audit: Agencies can now audit their own records to check for accuracy and open records.
  • Reports: Agencies will now see race and ethnicity break down (if this information has been collected) in the reporting function.

Agencies currently using PantryTrak will be sent the resource documents early next year. If your agency is not yet using PantryTrak, please reference the Agency Zone calendar for 2015 training opportunities.

If you have questions about PantryTrak, please contact Felicia Fullerton, Americorps VISTA at ffullerton@acrfb.org or 330.777.1052.
