GFS starts foodbank with a difference

There is an interesting story over on Gateway Family Service’s blog.

Yes, it’s about a new foodbank — at least, a foodbank of a certain kind — but that isn’t what makes it instructive. What makes it instructive is that it illustrates what some social enterprises do when they find an existing service contract is no longer able to meet the full extent of clients’ needs: they change the contract.

They improvise, they find ways to meet whatever new needs are becoming apparent. Quick, flexible, nimble….pragmatic — the social enterprise watchwords.
