Community FoodBank Tour

April 5, 2011 @ 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Managing a Supply Chain on a Shoestring Budget

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s 280,000 square foot facility in Hillside, NJ distributes 3 million pounds of food a month. Using their fleet of 19 trucks, the FoodBank picks up from major supporters, including Shoprite, as well as organized food drives and federal programs. Community Foodbank also purchases product to meet food needs.

During our tour, we will see how an organization deals with great variability in product intake and shipping, has developed cost effective approaches to adding refrigerated storage (which can be replicated in other settings), integrates the use of volunteers into the distribution process, and uses environmentally sustainable processes – all on a shoestring budget.

Cost: $30 member and non-members
