The Hassenfeld Child Health Innovation Institute is partnering with the Rhode Island Food Bank to administer the 2019 Rhode Island Food Assistance Study. Volunteers and needed to interview guests at member agencies of the Food Bank to help identify and understand who the Food Bank serves.
Per Matthew M. Scarpaci, M.P.H.:
Volunteers should be comfortable interacting with a diverse range of people in terms of age, culture, ethnicity, personality, and more, in addition to having basic computer technology skills. Each month, the Food Bank and its statewide network of member agencies provide food to 53,000 people. This study will offer an in-depth understanding of the people we serve, including their demographics, needs, and challenges. The results of the study will inform the Food Bank's advocacy and public education efforts. The study timeframe is expected to go from April through June 2019.
Volunteers must be 18+ years of age and able to:
Attend one 3-hour training session in March 2019
Travel to program sites to conduct interview with a team of other volunteers and Food Bank staff
Follow research guidelines and directions
Commit to fulfill at least 3 half-day study assignments
Volunteers who are bilingual and fluent in Spanish are greatly appreciated!
