Hunger study help

A local nonprofit is looking for volunteers to work the front lines on a major study of hunger in America.

Volunteers for the “Hunger in America 2014” study will conduct computer-based surveys with program participants at food shelves, meal sites and shelters. Volunteers need to like people and be energetic, according to Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, which is coordinating the study locally.

The local effort will be part of the Feeding America study that is conducted every four years to examine the nation’s charitable food system.

Training is required, with opportunities from 9 a.m. to noon May 6 and from 5:30-8:30 p.m. May 7, both at the Second Harvest food bank, 4503 Airpark Blvd.
