Current Volunteer ActivitiesVolunteers Needed for National Hunger Study
Food Bank of Alaska is looking for compassionate individuals who also have an interest in
research to volunteer with sampling, data collection and interviews for the Alaska portion of
the national Hunger in America study. Every 4 years, Food Bank of Alaska participates in
the national Hunger in America study conducted by Feeding America. This report is the best
source of Alaska specific data regarding hunger and our emergency food assistance network.
The study seeks to know more about the demographics and lived experience of individuals and
families accessing services through our emergency food assistance network, as well as seeks
to know more about the nature of our food assistance network. Food Bank of Alaska has more
than 300 anti-hunger partners in Alaska all around the state from Anchorage, to Kenai,
Fairbanks, Tok, Wrangell, Kodiak, Point Lay and more. We have a small staff and are looking
for volunteers to help us conduct the client surveys at locations around the state for
the client surveys at food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters around the state.
Volunteers must be over 18 years of age; no research experience is necessary as all
training will be provided by Food Bank of Alaska. Surveys begin in April and run
through August 2013; volunteers DO NOT need to be available for the entire survey
period. Travel expenses for volunteers for out of town travel will also be paid by Food
Bank of Alaska. For more information, see the job description and intake form or contact
Cara Durr at 907-222-3103 or email@example.com.
CSFP Reapplication Volunteer
You may have heard of the CSFP box builds that
happen one Saturday a month here at FBA where groups of people pack 1,800 food boxes for
low income seniors, pregnant and postpartum women, infants and children under six. Our
Advocacy and Agency Relations Department is looking for an organized and dependable
volunteer to assist with the annual process of reviewing and filing all of the applications
for the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP). We could use the assistance of a
committed volunteer to help us navigate through the mountains of paperwork and data entry
that is involved in ensuring that the people who most need CSFP food boxes get them. This
volunteer position will run from April to mid June. For more information, please review
the volunteer position description and contact Sandra Mitchell at
Volunteer in 2013! Thank you for your interest in Food Bank of Alaska.
