For over 10 years, LSSN operated a grocery style client choice food pantry/neighborhood market in Las Vegas, allowing homeless and low-income shoppers to feel dignified and choose the food they want to eat. However, in 2016, LSSN decided to go a step further and launched DigiMart, the first online food pantry. DigiMart is the logical next step for LSSN’s client-choice physical food pantry. Clients are assigned user names and passwords to be able to access the online food ordering system from their homes, desktop kiosks at LSSN, the libraries, anywhere they are with an electronic device that is connected to Internet. The monitor displays pictures of food items available, and a click of the mouse puts – say a can of reduced-sodium chicken noodle soup – into his or her digital cart. Once the order is complete, a receipt is sent to a computer in the pantry. The system also assigns automatic appointments after the client submits the order. Staff and volunteers bag or box the food and have it ready for the client to pick up.
The users of the DigiMart system are assigned points that are used like money to “purchase” food. A key component of DigiMart is that LSSN “prices” food that has higher nutritional value for fewer points than items that are less nutritious. For example, that can of reduced-sodium chicken noodle soup might be just 2 points, but a can of regular chicken noodle soup with a much higher salt content might be 5 points. DigiMart also provides fresh produce in bulk to promote healthy food choices. Clients are not charged to use the DigiMart program, and the points are replenished every 30 days. Each year, about half a million pounds of nutritious food supports thousands of our community members through DigiMart. A wide variety of meats, vegetables, fruits, dairy, bread and pastries as well as non-perishable food items were provided to those in need.
