Food Bank Uses Plative for Salesforce Transformation

“Plative is world class. They know what they are doing, they’ve helped us on every step along the way!"

Jennifer Lamplough

Chief Impact Officer


The vision at Northern Illinois Food Bank is for everyone in Northern Illinois to have the food they need to thrive by serving Neighbors in 13 counties, and providing 250k meals a day.


Northern Illinois Food Bank was using dated technology and spreadsheets as a fix for a lack of Agency relationship management capabilities. SNAP outreach was struggling to scale with volume needs and they were struggling to develop efficient processes with partners.


Plative created a self-service portal for agency partners to upload documentation and engage with the Food Bank. The Agency team now has a robust CRM for tracking activities and engagement of their partners. By leveraging Service Cloud, Plative created a point of triage for SNAP team members to assist Neighbors through much more efficient processes.


Northern Illinois Food Bank can now track activity and engagement with all existing and new Agency partners. Data is cleaner, more accessible and actionable. The Food Bank has expanded its reach to exponentially grow the impact they can make with their Neighbors.
