Second Helpings volunteer Bob Smith shows off a tablet computer loaded with the Home Base database application while delivering donated food at Bluffton Self Help on Thursday. The nonprofit group picks up food from several area grocery stores and restaurants, and then drops it off at places like Bluffton Self Help. Up until recently they recorded everything on paper - how many pounds they picked up here, how many pounds they dropped off there -- but now they have a program, designed just for them, that keeps track of all that.
