We know the impact that FFEN’s support can have!

One rural food shelf shared the following after receiving assistance from FFEN: “With the added refrigeration, we are able to offer more fresh foods and have milk and eggs on hand.  This saves a lot of money each month ordering from our food bank rather than having to purchase from our local grocery store.  Also, it’s one less stop for our clients.  It’s a win-win for both!” 

FFEN's ability to pair equipment improvements with food sourcing trend data and coaching to support ordering and service changes are a critical component of this on-the-ground impact.
