What is Bringfood?
I went through it with the delivery coordinator today–what takes us hours is now done in under 5 minutes. Unbelievable!
The Story Behind Bringfood
“COVID 19 has brought a certain clarity to the work that we do. We felt compelled to do something. We decided to focus our expertise and access to technology to a widespread and pressing problem, the hunger and food insecurity exacerbated by the pandemic. Bringfood, our routing and delivery solution, is already helping food pantries manage home deliveries, calculating in seconds the multi-vehicle, multi-stop routing plans that could take hours to map out. Our commitment to creating Bringfood has fed a consistent level of energy and enthusiasm within our company to do the right thing.”
We used to just hand out a group of addresses and hope for the best, but now they are able to have the most efficient route possible. This means less wasted time, less frustration and people get their food quickly!

AppGeo was one of several organizations invited to present a lightning talk at the 2020 Geo for Good Summit, hosted by Google. We were honored to be part of this great event! (5 minute video)
This is an amazing service to us! As a small food pantry with limited funds, we were unable to purchase or subscribe to other routing software. Due to the pandemic, we needed to go to a delivery model but were struggling with the additional workload for our volunteers! This application is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
