FPM is a web based suite of tools that are designed to help local food pantry managers and operators to be more efficient and effective in the daily operation of their pantry. Because hunger and homelessness has become a growing reality in our culture it has increased the need for sustainable local food pantries and soup kitchens to help those who are in need. The demands of record keeping and coordinating volunteer and staff, can be overwhelming and will often detract from the other tasks necessary to keep an organization running. FPM is dedicated to creating useful and affordable tools that will make the administrative aspects of any local pantry, easier and more efficient. We have built our system with non-profit organizations in mind, and believe that local budget limitations should not restrict an organizations ability to have access to the best tools available to help them manage their operation.
Any Food Pantry, Soup Kitchen or Food Bank would benefit from using FPM as part of its daily operation. Managers and staff of pantries are using the FPM system to help alleviate the daily management of their operation. FPM is designed with the end user in mind and makes the process of record keeping and reporting one that is easy and accurate.

I see one-third of a nation ill-housed, ill-clad, ill-nourished.
The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.Franklin D. Roosevelt, Inaugural Address, January 20, 1937
Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.Mother Teresa
