What We Do
Collective Action is a method to change our community so that every connected nonprofit is a building block in a person’s unique path out of poverty. By leveraging technology and data, TechBridge can ensure that community members have access to the right help and resources at the right time.
Collaboratives are a key part of Collective Action. By bringing together cross sector organizations focused on solving common community problems and improving community indicators, TechBridge helps drive and support coordination within the collaborative for efficiency of effort, positive outcomes and lasting community change.
The NYC Food Collaborative
The NYC Food Collaborative is funded by the Helmsley Trust and championed by United Way of NYC and engaging collaboration with NY State government, NYC government and the largest distributors of donated food in NYC. 1.37 million New Yorkers were food insecure during 2014, according to USDA statistics.
TechBridge created a data-sharing system and community portal allowing all participating nonprofit and governmental organizations to see food pantry allocations, actual food supply, and neighborhood-level service statistics for the 900 food pantries across the five boroughs of New York City.
