2014 Hunger Study
Connecticut Food Bank is participating in a national research project, Hunger in America 2014, across the Feeding America network. The purpose of the study is to help us gain a better understanding about the types of programs, services and resources you provide.
Connecticut Food Bank is a member of Feeding America, a network of more than 200 food banks across the U.S. Conducted every four years, Hunger in America, also known as the Hunger Study, is the largest study of charitable food assistance in America. Feeding America and Connecticut Food Bank have partnered with Westat, a research firm, to design and execute the study.
The next phase of the study is the Client Survey that will occur between April and August 2013.
