Hunger in America Study, How Can You Help?

 

Southeast Texas Food Bank participates in national hunger study

 

Beaumont, April 4, 2013 – The Southeast Texas Food Bank 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.

“We have all types of volunteer needs that we will be needing to fill from April to August of 2013.”

The Southeast Texas Food Bank, 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.
