Volunteers sought to help with national hunger study

By From page A8 | May 16, 2013

The Food Bank of Yolo County is participating in the national Hunger in America 2014 study, an in-depth, quadrennial look at its clients, in an effort to find ways to better serve those in need in the local community. The Food Bank is looking for volunteers from the community to help facilitate the survey.

The Food Bank of Yolo County, as 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 a detailed report, drawing on data from more than 61,000 interviews with clients and surveys of 37,000 feeding agencies.
