Connecticut Food Bank is participating in a national research project, Hunger in America 2014, the largest study of charitable food assistance in America.
Results from the study will help Connecticut Food Bank gain a better understanding about the types of programs, services and resources its member food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters provide to the individuals and families who struggle with hunger.
Volunteers are needed to help collect data from clients on-site at food-assistance agencies from mid-April through August 2013. This is one of the most critical parts of the study, as it allows Connecticut Food Bank to hear directly from clients and respond to their needs.
Those interested in helping with the data gathering process, can apply online at www.ctfoodbank.org by clicking the "Volunteering" button and scrolling down to the Hunger in America 2014 information. Volunteers must be 19 years or over and live in Connecticut during the summer.
