Digitization in the management of the Banc dels Aliments

  • COVID-19 emergency
  • The objective of the agreement between the Glòria Soler Foundation and the Banc dels aliments is to provide the institution with an innovative management and digitization tool that helps optimize the internal organization, automating and simplifying processes. This tool will initially be implemented in the Banc dels aliments de Barcelona, but it will be available to all Food Banks with similar issues.

    Efforts to improve Banc dels Aliments’ technology will contribute positively to improving the efficiency of the entire logistics chain of distribution, planning and management in order to reach more social institutions and beneficiaries. The COVID-19 emergency has highlighted the importance of digital resources and the urgent need to apply them in the data management from the Banc dels Aliments, thus supporting the modernization of the Third Sector.

    Since the beginning of the COVID-19 emergency, Food Banks have had to act quickly in order to adapt their operations and respond to a growing demand for food from social entities. This increase already exceeds 40% compared to the same period last year. The scenario this fall, with the increase in cases in the COVID-19 pandemic, seems to indicate that the social emergency derived from the health emergency and the slowdown in economic activity will mean that many people may have difficulties covering their basic needs.
