SEATTLE – Food banks across the country are undergoing a high-tech revolution, adopting sophisticated databases, bar coding, GPS tracking, automated warehouses and other technologies used in the food industry that increasingly supplies their goods.
It's a long way from handing out macaroni and canned soup from a church basement.
While more people can be fed through these innovations, food bank directors say it's also a sad acknowledgment that hunger has become a huge and seemingly unending problem.
This is very interesting and quite cool. I hope that the food banks were able to feed many people who needed help on Thanksgiving.
