Food Bank Temperature Monitoring
Over 46 million people regularly use one of the biggest food banks in America, Feeding America, 60% of those seeking help from a food bank are deemed to be vulnerable or high-risk individuals, such as the elderly, sick or children. With such a high proportion of vulnerable users, it’s imperative for food banks to ensure that donated produce is stored and monitored at the correct temperature.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevent estimates that 48 million people in the US get sick from food-related illness. Of these 128,000 are hospitalized and 3000 die from their illness. With vulnerable and high-risk individuals more susceptible to food-related illnesses such as Salmonella, Listeria, and E-coli, food banks must take every precaution to protect the people they support.
With the Hanwell Lite plug & play temperature monitoring kit, you can wirelessly monitor your donated produce, 24 hours a day, with instant alarm notifications, should any temperature fluctuations occur. Not only does temperature monitoring improve product quality and reduce product waste, but you’ll also reduce the risk of spreading harmful bacteria to your recipients.
