The Chattanooga Area Food Bank 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 community. As part of the study, the Chattanooga Area Food Bank is recruiting volunteers from the community to help facilitate the survey.
The Chattanooga Area 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.
