Data Collection Tools and Resources - Capital Area Food Bank
Skip to main content

The Capital Area Food Bank wants to support your organization in collecting data about the clients you serve. CAFB will be assisting all Shopping Partners to implement Service Insights in the next few years, but until your organization is onboarded onto the platform, we have created the following tools to help you begin to collect this information. The data analytics team is here to support you with data collection! Please reach out to with data collection questions or requests for support.

How does collecting this information benefit you?

  • Helps you (and CAFB) understand the people you are serving in your community
  • Helps you plan the amount and types of food you should order
  • Allows you to better understand your impact in the community
  • Can help with grant funding applications
