Food Bank NYC: Call for volunteers to conduct survey

October 4, 2011
Food Bank NYC is looking for volunteers to help conduct a survey!
The Food Bank for New York City is the city’s major hunger-relief organization working to end food poverty throughout the five boroughs.  Through its network of approximately 1,000 community-based member programs, the Food Bank helps provide 400,000 free meals to hungry New Yorkers.  The Research and Evaluation department of the Food Bank for New York City will be administering a survey to soup kitchen and food pantry participants on November 9, 2011, and for this effort we are seeking hundreds of volunteers. After a short evening training session scheduled the week before, volunteers will be visiting at least one food program and talking to several different participants, using a survey instrument which has been vetted and pretested.  We predict that their contribution to this effort will be simultaneously inspiring and sobering and will help us, and those who benefit from our research, tremendously.   If you are interesting in participating, please email Astrid Spota at and put VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY in the subject line. More info about time and location will be provided directly to volunteers.  Many thanks!
