Community Growth Impact Cultivator-SAME Cafe
So All May Eat / SAME is an innovative participation-based non-profit organization providing access to healthy food in a community setting where people of diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, and values can be nourished with dignity while contributing what they can -- time, money, or produce -- for a healthy meal at SAME Café Toledo. At SAME, guests experiencing hardship are seen for who they are: meaningful participants and generous contributors to the community, versus merely recipients of charity. Beyond serving a healthy, delicious meal for all, SAME Café Toledo is an organization that cultivates a community outside of the cafe itself. The locally sourced healthy food served at SAME and the dignity of being able to give back to the community is what has led hundreds of people to voice that SAME Café has changed or even saved their lives.

Member Duties : The VISTA member will have the opportunity to develop and implement organizational structures which promote community collaboration at our site. Piloting a new mobile application, the service member will expand our capacity to source local foods by creating an opportunity for community gardeners to donate surplus food, thereby reducing food waste. The VISTA will also survey SAME Café Toledo guests to increase our understanding of the demographic population being served and the Café’s impact. Client stories will then be utilized to bolster fundraising efforts, community outreach, grant writing, and annual reporting. Finally, the VISTA member will develop a process for recruitment, training, and deploying volunteers to capture produce donations through gleaning efforts across northwest Ohio.
