We attain the silver level in the Mircosoft (MSFT) partner program. Being affiliated with this program, allows us to build trust and credibility when talking to potential customers looking for a technology solution.
We begin our partnership with Second Harvest, starting with the Volunteer Connect. This project focuses on helping agencies who were previously unable to collect food with the FoodRescue.ca platform, connect with a pool of volunteers who will do food pick-ups on their behalf.
While working on Volunteer Connect, we notice the need to re-architect the current FoodRescue.ca platform, to keep the system performant. By implementing more cloud components and leveraging the existing D365 and Power Platform backend, we begin the process of helping Second Harvest meet their goals of scaling nationally.
We attain the gold level in the MSFT partner program.
We start working on a mobile app for Second Harvest's Food Rescue platform, leveraging parts of the new architecture for national scale.
Covid-19 hits and all hell breaks loose. There is a 40% increase in demand for food from food insecure families. During this time, we work around the clock with Second Harvest to scale their legacy system across Canada, bringing more donors in to donate surplus food and helping agencies claim food for families in need.
Within a week we develop and launch a grant portal based on the power platform and Survey Monkey, enabling Second Harvest to distribute $4.5M in federal funding to not-for-profits and charities for COVID-19 relief.
We officially start fully rewriting the FoodRescue.ca platform, architecting and building a new foundation for the future.
The first version of the foodrescue.ca mobile app is launched making it easier for donors to sign-up and donate and expanding the reach of the platform for agencies in the community.
