Are you passionate about food security? Interested in helping families and supporting farms in the Okanagan community? Our goal is to increase accessibility of the Good Food Box via online ordering. We are in search of a tech-savvy individual or group who could help us streamline our website. We would like to shift to a user-friendly platform, freshen up our web content and add the option to order the Good Food Box online. We would also like to update our backend database system.

Currently the database and orders are managed by volunteers with pen to paper and some very old excel spreadsheets. As you can imagine this process is very time consuming for our volunteers.

Recently the Good Food Box has experienced a spike in customer base to over 900 boxes per month. To the benefit of our clients and volunteer staff, we would like to streamline ordering and verifying as well as processing and recording payments.

Thank you to everyone who replies. We are not tech-savvy so we are limited in our understanding of the possibilities for tackling all of this. Your thoughts, suggestions and proposals for moving forward will be greatly appreciated!
