ShareCorps-United Way Toledo-Food Security Coordinator
United Way of Greater Toledo (UWGT) connects community resources to collaboratively address complex issues surrounding health, education, financial stability and housing. We raise approximately $8 million a year, engage nearly 20,000 donors, interact with over 450 area companies and industries, and in 2020, we recruited and mobilized 1,000+ volunteers who have donated 16,000+ hours of labor to regional non-profit organizations. Funds collected by United Way are invested back into the community to strengthen our focus areas (health, education, financial stability and housing) which are the building blocks for a good life. We invest in 50 organizations who operate 60 unique programs. Under our health pillar, we fund programs specific to food insecurity and have recently amplified our efforts to convene partners across the community to find solutions to hunger.

Member Duties : The VISTA will build capacity within United Way of Greater Toledo around community food security by convening emergency food providers to better understand their evolving needs, especially those that have been exacerbated by COVID. The VISTA will work to find solutions through United Way's community network and research new funding opportunities. An ongoing community dialogue is critical to keep hunger issues at the forefront of local groups and elected officials. The VISTA will also work on a fall Community Food Summit to create a forum for these discussions and to capture innovative ideas on pilot programs for hunger solutions across our three counties. Currently, a Food Security Task force of invested United Way donors convenes quarterly. The VISTA will put in place the building blocks of an official Food Policy Council with diverse stakeholders, as an evolution of this task force. **Benefits include a $200 housing stipend to supplement living costs.**
