COVID-19 Food Assistant Project
"Complete at your convenience/schedule
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.
More than 37 million people struggle with hunger in this country on an average day and due to the health crisis this number may only grow. In this rapidly changing environment many food operations have been adjusted and redirected; pantries and kitchens have had to change their distribution methods, emergency food delivery for home bound seniors has increased, restaurants are providing meals to hungry kids, stores have special hours for at risk populations.
The crowdsourced information such as details on where food, supplies, and volunteers are needed most will be routed to the appropriate partners, and the site statuses will be freely available to the public, as well as help the national USDA Hunger Hotline connect callers to the most up-to-date resources.
Volunteers are able to conduct this research remotely and will verify and/or identify resources through a variety of methods, including directly contacting sites and using social media channels. Volunteers should be moderately comfortable researching, communicating over the phone and electronically, as well as using web-based technology.
