Skills-Based Volunteer Needs Assessment Survey

 The Reducing Hunger Service Initiative, a strategic partnership of NYC Service, has brought together a group of Non-Profits and City Agencies to work on a city-wide service initiative to engage more volunteers to help reduce food insecurity in New York City. One aspect of the Initiative is to recruit skills-based volunteers in activities that help build capacity of emergency feeding programs (EFPs) to more effectively meet their clients’ needs.
