Abstract

Feed’Em Soup ("FES") is a non-profit organization located in DeKalb, IL, whose mission is “To provide meals, offer encouragement and support and supply opportunities to those in need within our community.” Volunteer assistance, donations and grants are the primary means to sustain the current FES operation. A goal of FES this year is to obtain additional public and private grants. However, FES's current inventory tracking practices do not provide sufficient information to pursue most grants. This senior capstone provides FES a web-based inventory system that tracks food donations and generates reports essential for grant applications. With the data provided by the web-based inventory system, FES will be able to obtain further grants which will allow them to strengthen their core mission and expand the outreach provided to the community.
