Loaves, Fishes and Computers (LFC) is a non-profit organization located in Monterey County which focuses on helping low-income individuals obtain computers and other services, such as low-cost internet access and technical support, to help bridge the technology gap in the county. It has been seen that there is a lack of accessibility to the Internet and computers within the low-income community of Gonzales, CA. The impact of limited accessibility within the community is affecting the way individuals gain the knowledge necessary in attaining their goals and becoming self-sufficient. This project helped collect data to build a collaboration to help bridge the gap. The method used to obtain this data was a questionnaire that was conducted through phone calls. Sufficient data was collected to determine what organizations LFC can work with to offer Internet access at a lower cost to the low-income community. LFC will develop an implementation plan in the near future.
