Resources - Client Choice
Designing for Choice focuses around the term "client choice." Client choice is where
food pantry clients can choose some or all of the food they bring home. Clients
can use a shopping cart and walk the aisles or pick available foods from a list.
Help for implementing client choice can be found in the
Client Choice Manual and Making the Switch: A Guide for Converting to a Client Choice Food Pantry. Also, the following fact sheet,
"Role of Nutrition Educators in Enhanced Choice Food Pantries" will
provide agencies information on how to set up a client-choice food pantry model.
Additionally, you can visit "Charity Food Programs that can End Hunger in America", which has information about client choice and additional topics. For more information about client choice, watch the following Ken McKan video clip:
