Charting Impact

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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

The Food Bank of Siouxland aims to strategically close the meal gap (as defined by the national organization, Feeding America, of which the Food Bank is a partner distribution member) in our 11 counties over the next three years. To accomplish this, we need to 1) secure sufficient funding, 2) enhance our infrastructure, and 3) educate and nourish Siouxland.

To secure sufficient funding, the Food Bank will focus on diversifying funding as well as creating and maintaining a healthy, sustainable operating budget. To enhance our infrastructure, the Food Bank will research and develop efficient logistics, determine and hire for appropriate staffing needs, and ensure that our building is functional and scaleable to growth needs.

The Food Bank's leadership staff and Board of Directors are committed to ensuring the success of the organization and willingness to ensure resources are secured to carry out the vision and strategies. Teams have been formed for each strategy area and quarterly goals have been set. In some cases, outside expertise will be brought in to help advance the goals.

As progress is made in each of the three strategy areas, the Food Bank will be positioned to continue growth in distribution pounds to meet the meal gap. The Board of Directors is reviewing the progress of each strategy team monthly and holding team leaders accountable. Completion of the goals will make it possible for the Food Bank to distribute the over 2.6 million pounds of food by 2020; thereby, meeting the meal gap.

This revised strategic plan was completed in May 2017 and the board and staff are reviewing it and using it to make monthly strategic decisions. Teams have been successful in further developing their goals and the metrics needed to gauge success. The secure sufficient funding team dug into the income stream and now has a plan in place for tracking each source of funds more efficiently and effectively. The enhance our infrastructure team has been reviewing current inefficiencies and was successful in applying for two grants to improve infrastructure - the addition of a bar-coding system for the warehouse, and a new freezer and cooler expansion project. The educate and nourish team has been able to expand the BackPack Program, added a new Mobile School Pantry Program, and exploring ways to expand the School Pantry Program that has been piloted in North High School.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
