Currently a team of Transport and Supply Chain Management master’s students are leading a project to improve the services of the fresh food brigade, an Amsterdam Food Bank initiative. The team are tasked with the overhaul of the fresh food brigade. Here, the team is busy with; standardizing processes within the inbound and outbound aspect of food bank's operations, designing an optimal routing system for pick-up and deliveries from a number of supermarket donors, as well as creating linkages between pick-up and distribution points within the Amsterdam Food Bank's operations.
Providing long-term support to the Amsterdam Food Bank is crucial to our organizations' existence. Therefore, a team of students have been tasked with organizing Project FoodBank internally. A key objective of this continuous project is to recruit organizational members and volunteers in order to meet our goals. A sound system to facilitate the management of a human resource database is in place for volunteer recruitment. In addition, promotional and marketing events for Project FoodBank are being planned as we speak. Keep a look out on our social media pages for updates!
