Participate in our research

Soup kitchens and food pantries do vital work with limited budgets. But governments are slashing funding both to hungry people and to hunger relief programs. We must do more with less.

We launched The Nourish Lab to help soup kitchens and food pantries use their resources more efficiently so they can feed more people. To succeed, we need your help. We're conducting surveys and interviews to tell us what works well in your communities, and we need to hear about your challenges too.

Soup kitchen and food pantry workers and volunteers can help by filling out the form below. When we launch our first survey in a few weeks, we'll be sure to send you an invitation -- and when we publish our research, we'll send you a copy.

Working together, we can do better and help more people. We hope you'll take the time to participate.

Welcome to The Nourish Lab

The Nourish Lab is a nonprofit that uncovers best practices and fosters collaboration to help soup kitchens and food pantries better serve their communities.

We survey and interview hunger relief agencies around the world to learn about their successes and their challenges. We then publish our findings on a blog and in free research reports.

We also plan to build an online community so soup kitchens and food pantries can connect directly with one another to share, collaborate, and learn.

We launched The Nourish Lab with a single goal: To help hunger relief programs use their resources more efficiently so they can help more people.

We can't wait to get to work.
