Surveys for Success: Gleaners Food Bank

gleaners food bank of the year

DB Services has chosen to support Gleaners Food Bank in quarter 3 of 2022 with our Surveys for Success program. Since its founding, Gleaners has distributed nearly 700 million pounds of food and critical grocery items through a committed network of more than 300 food pantries, soup kitchens, schools, and community partners. The Surveys for Success program is our way of saying thank you for your valuable feedback by paying it forward to those in need.

Gleaners' mission is clear and straightforward: to lead the fight against hunger. They believe that there should be food on every table, so each year they provide at least 19 million meals to their communities. Gleaners also has other programs to assist those in need, including nutrition education programs and mobile pantries. 

Gleaners also operates Fresh Connect Central, one of seven regional produce cooperatives for Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization. Fresh Connect is a program designed to close the gap between food waste and hunger. 20 billion pounds of fresh produce never make it off the farm and are either plowed under or dumped in landfills. Fresh Connect is committed to rescuing as much farm-fresh food as possible and redirecting it to food banks. Today, they serve over 50 food banks, primarily in the Midwest. They redistributed more than 42 million pounds of food in 2021 alone.

Each customer survey we receive is an additional donation towards Gleaners Food Bank. Your feedback for DB Services will not only help our team, but also support the mission of Gleaners in the process! Simply fill out our surveys with your feedback, and together we can make a positive impact.

"We were actually able to add more features than we thought would be possible within our budget. We always experienced a ‘can do’ attitude and DB Services was incredibly patient and easy to work with."

"The new FileMaker custom website interface is very user-friendly and easy to follow for our clients. In addition, it is much faster than the old Instant Web Publishing (IWP) interface. Thank you and all the others who have helped us out at DB Services. I am very grateful for the excellent service you provide us. Its nice to know we can call you for help if we have an issue."

"We needed a solution that would simplify the administration of our responsibilities under our contract with the State of Indiana. We have seen a dramatic increase across the state in the number of potential foster and adoptive parents that have begun the preparation and training process. This increase has resulted in a significant opportunity for children available for adoption. That’s a big win for everyone! And it’s all because we can refer potential parents to the proper state contacts efficiently and quickly."

"Thank you for all of your expertise and valuable help. I am so grateful to have found DB Services."
Linda Findlay
"Thank you for our new database system. We transitioned from a carbon copy paper based system to a digital database. The software has saved us time and money. We used to archive all our jobs in cabinets, now we can look up a job in seconds from anywhere. The software allows us to easily email estimates to our customers in pdf format. In a year there was a return on investment just from eliminating the purchasing of our carbon forms."
Todd Cartmel
"The new system allows us to create and track jobs for customers along with inventory, something we had been doing with separate word and spreadsheet files. Because it’s now so intuitive, new staff members are able to begin using the database immediately without our usual training session and ‘cheat sheets’ for getting around within the file."
