Daily Bread Food Bank believes that research is critical to creating social change to reduce poverty, so every year we collect data from food banks across Toronto to publish the Who’s Hungry Report.
Based on issues that affect food bank clients, the Who’s Hungry Report helps advocate for policy changes that improve the lives of children and adults living in poverty.
And to create our Who’s Hungry Report we need volunteers!
If you are over 19 years old and fluent in reading, writing and speaking English, you can volunteer. We also need volunteers who can speak other languages. Survey training will be provided.
When and Where
Surveying starts in February and goes to the end of April. Hours and shifts will vary but most shifts are 2 to 3 hours long. We conduct surveys in more than 50 food banks across Toronto.
Daily Bread is currently offering volunteer positions throughout our organization. We are looking for a Kitchen Prep Assistant as well as a Welcome Centre Greeter. Each of these positions play a very large role in our operation and help us continue to fight hunger all year round.
