In an effort to help eliminate barriers to access food, Feeding America recently launched OrderAhead, an online grocery ordering system. This is especially impactful as, over the past year, many Americans have been put under economic strain in light of the global pandemic. The new system enables people in need to order food online and select a pickup time and location.
"Having access to nutritious food is paramount in helping people live better. When someone has a difficult time accessing food, it's important we help connect the dots," said Maryann Byrdak, chief information officer at Feeding America. "OrderAhead is a tool that not only helps connect people to food assistance but does it in an efficient, convenient, and private way."
