Volunteer with HFA for Hunger Action Month this September!

Register here, http://vhub.at/HungerActionMonth.

About HFA: HUNGER FREE AMERICA is a nonpartisan, national nonprofit group working to enact the policies and programs needed to end domestic hunger and ensure that all Americans have sufficient access to nutritious food.

About Event: As a response to the COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus) pandemic, Hunger Free America needs your help creating the most current database of food resources and assistance in this rapidly changing environment. The crowd-sourced information will be freely available to all who might need assistance during this time and will help the national USDA Hunger Hotline provide the most current information to all those who need assistance.

***This is an entirely virtual event that requires a time commitment of 2 hours***

These events will take place every Monday from 4 - 6 pm (except Labor Day Sept 7th) and every Friday from 1 - 3 pm throughout the month of September.

Overview of Event:

  • We will start with a brief training on the project and resources so do not worry if you do not have experience! All materials will be provided including a script for calling.
  • HFA will provide live support via zoom throughout the entire event.
  • We will conclude with a short debrief and reflection.

Volunteer Duties

  • Make calls to food pantries and soup kitchens to verify and update existing data in our National Database using our survey and call script.

Please feel free to set up a free Google Voice account prior to the event (https://voice.google.com/u/0/signup) if you do not have a telephone to make calls or wish to keep your telephone number private.
