It turns out, running a food pantry isn't just fruits, vegetables, and other nutritious food. It takes a lot of work and engaging hundreds of volunteers! Alliant Energy wanted to help the Badger Prairie Needs Network in Madison do just that while engaging their own team in learning innovation skills and in their community.

Creative Adventure Lab partnered with Alliant Energy to bring Community IDEAthons to Madison, WI and Cedar Rapids, IA, in order to help 3 nonprofits in each community, find innovative solutions to live challenges in their organizations. The video above shares the impact IDEAthon had on one of the participating organizations in Madison, WI. The Badger Prairie Needs Network is a 100% volunteer-run nonprofit that provides food to those in need as well as other food pantries in the Madison area.

IDEAthon is a day-long innovation process that teaches innovation skills, engages teams, and creates solutions in a fun and effective way. It’s just one of the Innovation Services we offer for organizations, companies, and groups at Creative Adventure Lab.

Creative Adventure Lab provides Innovation Services to help Alliant Energy tackle live business challenges of their own and to support causes in the communities they serve. Processes like IDEAthon help foster innovation among the Alliant Energy team and provide valuable solutions by helping teams discover, strengthen, and apply innovation skills in the company and in the community.
