Volunteer drivers are greatly needed to assist with delivering meals on Mondays between 10am-2pm. A route takes about an hour to complete.  All volunteers must have a valid drivers license and pass a background check.

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Retail Environment Research

Opportunities currently not available due to COVID-19. Please complete an application now and we will reach out when we begin to survey again.

Survey grocery, convenience, and pharmacy stores in the Bay area that accept SNAP benefits. We have partnered with the national Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to complete an extensive research study looking at the affordability, variety, and quality of SNAP approved foods at local retailers in Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas Counties. Volunteers must use their own vehicle and gas to reach the stores, though compensation in the form of gas gift cards may be available. Volunteers will be provided a tablet to use to input the data.
