Opportunity Council - MFN Funding & Volunteer Programs VISTA
Miracle Food Network fights poverty by addressing people’s basic needs for food and opportunity. Our food recovery program works to collect surplus foods from around the county and redistribute that food to families in need through direct deliveries to families and deliveries to local organizations. This VISTA project will work to cultivate and sustain relationships with current and future donors, spread community awareness of MFN, and engage with MFN volunteers to meet their needs. The first goal of this project is to further develop MFN's grant writing program. This includes locating and applying for applicable grants, recruiting, and managing interns, and overseeing grant applications. The second goal of this project is to increase public awareness of the mission and accomplishments of MFN by expanding MFN’s social media presence and participating in local events. The final goal of this project will be to further volunteer recognition and retention efforts through fun events, newsletters, and new programs for volunteers to participate in.
