Technology a blessing and curse in feeding needy

Technology a blessing and curse in feeding needy: "FAIRFIELD — Technology has been a blessing and a curse for area nonprofit agencies who receive donated food that is later distributed to the needy. While new technology has enabled Shared Harvest Foodbank in Faifield to better track food from wholesalers, the advancement has created less amounts to distribute."

okay, now that i have looked at the original article i understand what the issue is here. but i would think that the foodbank would be able to go back to those donors and ask for monetary donations instead based upon the savings they are incurring b/se of technology.
