Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Step 1: Milestone: In 2013 we will serve 75,000 meals. We will track the data daily, compile it monthly and compare it with the last twenty years of data. We look for trends and plan accordingly.

Step 2: Milestone: In 2013 we will serve 2,100 unduplicated individuals. As with our meal count, this monthly number indicates when a change in resources is required.

Step 3: Milestone: In 2013 we will install a new walk-in freezer in our basement to replace the cold storage capacity we use at Twin Ports Cold Storage in Superior WI. The 15' x10' walk-in freezer will cost us $14,635 of which we have secured funding from Open Your Heart Foundation and capital reserve. This capital expense will pay for itself in monthly storage and delivery fee savings.

Step 4: Milestone: In 2013 we will maintain a clean, food-safe kitchen to pass our annual State of Minnesota Health Department inspection. Our kitchen employees are trained to direct our volunteers in safe-food handling and kitchen cleaning. We are on an equipment maintenance plan with a local kitchen equipment service vendor. We provide our employees with clean white shirts daily and cleaning towels from our laundry vendor. In the summer of 2012 we had a surprise inspection which we passed without comment.

Step 5: Milestone: In 2013 we will use software to assist us in nutritional analysis of our meals. Better meal planning will take place. We have included a sampling.

We generate data daily which we collect and compile monthly. We compare our program data with the past data and current budget. We project our cash flow control out 24 months and use this data as a early warning sign of possible adjustments. We use computer spreadsheets (Excel, Quattro) to compile our data with. Attached is our daily meal count control and our monthly meal count control. This data helps track our success and plan our meals.
