Alameda County Community Food Bank: Client Data and Insights Volunteer
A client data & insights volunteer is needed to support the Food Bank’s research team in developing a plan for reporting on our growing set of client data. ACCFB is one year into a multi-year implementation of a new
client-management system (“Client Voice”). This new system is central to our goal of better knowing who we serve and how to better support them. Data from the system will enable us to report client and household demographics as being accurately reflective of the entire population we serve. Accurate client data has critical importance to all food bank functions, including programming, policy recommendations and resource
development – while improving network agency efficiency and overall client experience. We anticipate onboarding 15-20% of our network agencies by volume each year between 2018-2022.
