Pilot Study Open

Dear Partner Agencies –
Good Shepherd Food Bank is excited to begin a new project aimed at improving service for people struggling with hunger across Maine.
As we previously announced, we are inviting food pantry partners to participate in a Pilot Study for the Service Insights Initiative. Good Shepherd Food Bank is seeking up to 25 partner agencies to participate in the Pilot Study, working together with the Food Bank to collect data at the local level about people being served at your food pantry using a uniform intake process.
Participants in the Service Insights Pilot Study will be provided with data collection software and any needed technology, training materials and ongoing technical assistance, as well as customized data reports for your agency prepared by Good Shepherd Food Bank to reflect our appreciation for your participation. And, of course, you will have full access to the data you collect!
The opportunity to apply for the Pilot Study is NOW OPEN. Please follow the link below to access more information about our Service Insights Initiative, and to fill out your application today. The link to the application will close July 31, 2018.  
If you have questions about this project, please reach out to John Rorke, Research & Evaluation Manager at 207-782-3554 ext. 1198 or
GSFB Network is a blog for partner agencies of Good Shepherd Food Bank focused on feeding Maine's hungry.
