In 2012, Superstorm Sandy ravaged the East Coast, leaving many New Yorkers with limited access to food for their families. Food Bank For NY sprung into action but suddenly found themselves over-supplied and under-staffed.
Long after the storm had subsided, volunteers were still unable to provide food quickly and efficiently, leaving them not only frustrated, but disappointed that they couldn’t do more.
By modifying the location of supplies and reducing the size of the storage boxes to eliminate waste, more food could be packed and shipped for quickly. More importantly, the Food Bank was able to feed 400 more families in half the time.
