At Daily Bread, we believe that research is critical to creating social change to reduce poverty.
We conduct an annual survey of people who utilize food banks to understand trends in food insecurity and poverty in Toronto. The results of this survey inform our annual Who’s Hungry report, which is used to educate the public and advocate for solutions to end hunger in our city.
We need volunteers to conduct surveys with food bank clients on a range of issues at one or more of our member agencies. Hours and locations vary based on food bank hours and the volunteer’s availability. In this role, volunteers can expect to learn research best practices, receive training on conducting surveys, and gain experience in the field.
- Attend a two-hour training session in February
- Complete a minimum of 2 shifts conducting one-on-one client surveys at one or more of Daily Bread’s member agencies between March and May. Shifts range in length from 3-5 hours.
- Report back information from the completed shifts to the Research & Policy Officer
Volunteers should be at least 19 years of age, have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and be fluent in English. Additional languages and previous research experience are both considered assets, but are not required.
