No hunger Food Bank’s research and innovation work focuses on the prevention, treatment, and drivers of undernutrition. Our approach to research marries science with pragmatism – providing us with the nuts and bolts required to create tangible change, even in the most difficult contexts. Our initiatives, which are intentionally and explicitly fit-for-purpose, are designed to achieve the standard of evidence necessary for action on critical issues, while abiding by fundamentally strict ‘do no harm’ principles. To accomplish this goal, we: Advance the evidence base to link research with concrete operational impact; Provide empirically based, data-driven analysis and recommendations; Prioritize partnerships that are profoundly collaborative in nature; and, Identify clear, culturally appropriate, and sustainable pathways to scale successful solutions. No hunger Food Bank’s dedicated research and innovation team designs and develops these activities across the organization. Our experts lead a variety of activities, including operational research, impact evaluations, proof of concept pilots, and cost studies, to support the integration of evidence within our practices, policies, and programs.
