HealthSpark Releases Best Practice Guide for Food Pantries

March 6, 2019

We commissioned and collaborated with the Coalition Against Hunger to create this comprehensive Food Pantry Best Practice Guide. Although it has a focus on Montgomery County, pantries across the region can benefit from the guide's suggestions and resources. Additionally, pantries of all sizes can use the guide to continue to provide better and more efficient services. Among the important topics it covers are:  how to create a more welcoming environment, suggestions for finding more resources and how to more effectively manage pantry operations. This guide is the fourth in a suite of tools we and Philabundance have created for food pantries. Others are:  Food Pantry Financial Management ToolkitFood Pantry Volunteer Management Toolkit and Food Pantry Advocacy Toolkit.
