About

ROLE: The Program Evaluation Intern will conduct a research project to assess the social impact of our hunger relief meals upon our recipient partners’ clientele. The Program Evaluation Intern will develop and implement a research design that addresses the key research questions: "What are the impacts of Kitchens for Good’s meals on our recipient partners and their clientele? Do KFG meals have a lasting impact on the health and wellness of our recipients"?

ACTIVITIES:

  • Draft a brief literature review on existing research (social implications of increased access to healthy food)

  • Develop a research design proposal, including strategies for data collection and a plan for data analysis. Identify data collection tools, determine metrics, and define standards for classifying results.

  • Collect qualitative and quantitative data that address the central research question. Interview staff and clientele from Kitchens for Good’s hunger relief and senior meal contract partners and administer surveys.

    • Investigate clients’ opinions about Kitchens for Good and our Project Nourish meal program

    • Inquire about recipients’ eating habits and other lifestyle choices. Assess if any direct correlation exists between consumption of KFG meals and healthy lifestyle choices

    • Collect data about recipients’ KFG meal consumption

  • Organize and code the data according to the research design protocol. Create a report delineating the findings of the research study and recommendations for program changes.

  • Attend biweekly meetings with Program Director and Volunteer Coordinator to discuss progress and seek feedback/support
