Ending Hunger 2.0 leads cutting edge research, data collection, and analysis around challenges related to food insecurity and hunger.
As a data-driven organization, we depend on timely and accurate data at every level. We use it to:
- Guide strategic development of programs and new solutions
- Provide reliable data to enhance public awareness
- Inform public policy discussions and decisions
Our research includes formal and informal data collection through standardized surveys, programmatic evaluation methods, focus groups, and other feedback loops. It is critical that we hear from our neighbors right here in North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota.
We also depend on outside resources to validate the interconnectedness of hunger and its root cause. The following platforms are trusted sources of data that the Great Plains Food Bank uses to identify trends, provide a comparison, and understand regional and national impacts.
