Volunteer opportunity description

This is a special event for Spanish-speaking volunteers to conduct outreach to NYC communities. 

Volunteer with HFA to help connect families to food assistance!  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. 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 to support them during these times. 

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

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.  A basic overview of the programs and resources will be reviewed at the start of the event. A script for calling and emailing will be provided. 

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).
