Recently, I had the opportunity to work with local Denver food pantry Metro CareRing. Their leadership came to me with the idea of leveraging the purchasing power of their organization with the shopping experience of individual donors. So, with that in mind, and with the help of Open Cart, an open source e-commerce platform, we built a virtual food drive donation site.
If you’re feeling generous, or simply curious, you can check out the web site here.
