Provision is a digital inventory tool that connects all of the food pantries in the Chicagoland area. Enabling each pantry manager to find the food they need and to give away the food don’t. Together, ensuring no food goes bad.



A responsive web app allows pantry managers to browse through surplus food from nearby pantries and claim offers, create their own, and manage the items going in and out of their pantry.


All items used in the app had to be photographed and retouched. We began by creating a library containing over 50 of the most common items at pantries.


Posters were hung in pantries to encourage
managers to register.
