Southern Arizona Volunteers Needed for National Hunger Studyby Hot Off The Press (Release) on May. 01, 2013, under Press Releases
Tucson: The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona is participating in the National Hunger in America 2014 study, an in-depth, quadrennial look at our clients, in an effort to find ways to better serve those in need in our community. As part of the study, the Community Food Bank is looking to recruit volunteers from the community to help facilitate the survey.
Volunteers will be needed now through the end of August and will need to be computer literate. Bilingual skills are also helpful, but not required.
“This is a very important study for all food banks,” said Bill Carnegie, Community Food Bank President/CEO. “It will give us an extensive picture of our clients in Southern Arizona and how we can continue to serve their needs.”
The Community Food Bank, part of the Feeding America network, is participating in the study along with nearly 200 other food banks across the country. When completed, Hunger in America will be the largest study of charitable food assistance in the United States, providing comprehensive and statistically-valid data on the charitable food distribution system and the people being served by the Feeding America network.
The last study, Hunger in America 2010, resulted in an extremely detailed report, drawing on data from more than 61,000 interviews with clients and surveys of 37,000 feeding agencies.
Those wishing to volunteer may contact the Volunteer Services Department at (520) 882-3292 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
