2) Database for non-profit food bank - ***WEB BASED ***

    JoshuaMcClure

I have created an online secure and safe database called Food Pantry Manager. It is only $15.00 per month (or $153 if paid annually) and comes with a free 1 month trial. I have built the system to allow upgrades and additions so if you have some custom data to track, Food Pantry Manager can custom code a module for you! We also have data conversion services for those of you who have data and would like to be able to track it in the Food Pantry Manager system. Some key features of this software: Client Information and Visitation Tracking, Financial Tracking, Volunteer Scheduler, Reporting Services and 24/7 Free Support. Please also note that Food Pantry Manager is a Web based software solution with no downloads or system requirement. Just sign up and start managing your data!
