We are looking for volunteers to remotely conduct surveys by phone with food bank clients about their experiences with food insecurity and poverty in Toronto. The results of this survey inform our annual Who’s Hungry report, which is used to educate the public and advocate for solutions to end hunger and poverty in our city.
This year, we are looking for volunteers to remotely conduct surveys via telephone during the day and/or evening throughout March and April. In this role, volunteers can expect to learn research best practices, receive training on conducting our survey, and gain experience in the field.
