How to Calculate/ Measure/ Collect Data
At the outset of the activity the grantee should indicate the "dosage," or how many sessions, days or hours of the service are required to influence the desired outcomes. Only count clients who received some minimum "dosage" can be expected to have some effect in terms of alleviating hunger.
Service requires an engagement with the individual in person, by phone, or through a web-interface. Pamphlets, brochures, or web-based information that does not involve a human interaction is not sufficient.
Count of unduplicated individuals receiving the support, services, education or referrals as a result of the grantee's activities. If more than one method of delivery is used (e.g., a group-level interaction followed by an individual-level interaction), count the individual only once. Only count individuals directly engaged in the service.
Grantee client tracking database or tracking forms or logs of interactions with clients.
