I love this redesign. It is very similar to the approach I helped RMHC take a couple of years ago. One thing that is missing from your case study though is being accessible to people with disabilities. Non-profits are definitely not immune from the tsunami of lawsuits that have been increasing year over year by significant amounts for the last decade. In the US (and especially in California), you want to be following WCAG 2.0 Level AA at a minimum. This is especially true since people with disabilities are more likely to need food assistance, since they are more likely to be poor from underemployment / unemployment. It will not change what your website looks like but it will change how it behaves behind the scenes to people using assistive technology. I do digital accessibility on a volunteer basis, and your group is near to me geographically, please reach out if you are interested in help in this area.
