How Kindful Helped The Nashville Food Project Get Off Spreadsheets
One in seven people in Nashville lacks access to enough food to sustain a healthy lifestyle.
At the same time, 40% of all the food in Nashville goes to waste.
That’s why The Nashville Food Project exists. Formed in 2007, TNFP grows and recovers food, prepares and cooks made-from-scratch meals, and shares it with their community. Not only that, but they also partner with organizations that are working to combat poverty, unemployment, low wages and escalating housing costs – factors that all contribute to the challenges that the most vulnerable residents of our city face.
When Teri Sloan, the current Chief Operations Officer, joined the organization she inherited a system based entirely on spreadsheets. “I love a good spreadsheet, don’t get me wrong, but we needed to do something else. We’ve got to get more organized.”
That’s where Kindful came in.
