ShareCorps-Dayton Cooks!-Community Engagement Coordinator
Miami Valley Meals and Dayton Cooks! are coordinating efforts to gain a more well-rounded understanding of food insecurity in their respective nonprofits. We believe this can be done through strengthening our volunteer, fundraising and engagement efforts, both internally and externally, so we might better connect the voices in the fight to be a more food secure city. Miami Valley Meals distributes hearty, thoughtful meals, free of charge, through a network of nonprofit partners. This frees up valuable resources and opens doors, allowing the nonprofit partners to devote critical resources to their missions of service, whether that be providing food, shelter to those experiencing homelessness, case management or physical and mental health care. In turn, this fosters deeper relationships with their clients and connects them to other services that address the root causes of their poverty. Wesley Community Center partners with Grace United Methodist Church to implement Dayton Cooks!. The Dayton Cooks! Program is a 10-week training program whose mission is to change the lives of income eligible persons committed to a culinary arts career through rigorous training in food safety and preparation, kitchen skills as well as job and life skills. Healthy and nutritious meals prepared by Dayton Cooks! are served to income eligible children in afterschool programs in the community.
