Volunteers are needed to assist the Harry Chapin Food Bank with a national hunger study. The study will take place at various agencies that receive and distribute food through the food bank. Times and locations will vary, but volunteers will be needed between three and six hours for each site. Bi-lingual English and Spanish is a plus.
Volunteers will be thoroughly trained and will be assisted at all times by food bank staff members. Training will be provided April 10 at the food bank office, at 3760 Fowler St. in Fort Myers. Volunteers will be interviewing clients at various sites of food bank participating agencies throughout Southwest Florida.
Volunteers will utilize Dell computer tablets provided by Feeding America and pre-programmed with a list of questions the clients will answer. Volunteers will make certain the clients' information is gathered with the highest level of respect for their privacy and present circumstance; the study results will assist in better serving them.
Individuals interested in assisting the food bank by being a volunteer for the study are asked to contact Contact Bedzaida Bryen at (239) 334-7007, ext. 141.
