Collaborative Design Tools for Food Pantries

Collaborative Design Tools for Food Pantries contains guidance on how to work with communities to improve their experience at food pantries. 

These design tools were adapted through a collaborative design (co-design) process at the Harvest on Vine Food Pantry in Boston. Co-design is a participatory approach to designing solutions. All stakeholders are treated as equal collaborators: it’s about designing with, not for. The aim of this work is not only to understand preferences, strengths, and needs of pantry visitors and engage them in the design of better experiences. It also creates a community space that supports dignity and connection and reduces the stigma that can be associated with accessing the charitable food system.
