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: During the COVID-19 pandemic, countless families have faced unprecedented circumstances that have caused financial strain and limited access to basic amenities like food and shelter. The HFA phone banking initiative serves to connect families with information and resources on food assistance to support them during these times.

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

Dates and Language:

  • Events for English-speaking volunteers - Sept 3rd, 10th, 12th, and 17th from 1 - 3 pm.
  • Events for Spanish-speaking volunteers - Sept 24th and 26th from 1 - 3 pm.

Overview of Event:

  • We will start with a brief training on phone banking 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:

  • Provide vital food resources and information over the phone.
  • Keep track of calls made. A list will be provided to volunteers with the names and contact information of individuals to reach out to.
  • Record contact information for callers who would like information to be emailed or texted to them.

To ensure volunteer privacy, it is recommended that volunteers set up a free Google Voice account prior to the event ( https://voice.google.com/u/0/signup).
