Associated Press Release
America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend 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, Second Harvest is looking to recruit volunteers from the community to help facilitate the survey.
Second Harvest, 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.
If you would like to volunteer, please contact Second Harvest at (850) 562-3033 or visit their website at www.fightinghunger.org.
