With a $100,000 grant from Intel, Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties will install a food-tracking system that will let the agency distribute more than 4 million additional pounds of food annually.
Intel's inspiration for the makeover grant was a 2005 Community Foundation Silicon Valley study that showed non-profits struggling to afford major technology, Pettinger said. The company held workshops to help non-profit officials evaluate their hardware, software, Web services and other needs. About 22 organizations submitted proposals, and Second Harvest was awarded the grant this week.
