ShareCorps -Food For Thought- Summer Market&Pantry Associate
Food For Thought is a grassroots, Toledo-based nonprofit with a mission to feed individuals and families who are experiencing food insecurity in a thoughtful and intentional manner. This is done through three distinct programs: mobile pantries, which provide supplemental nutrition assistance (shelf-stable and fresh produce at no cost to patrons) at host partner sites throughout the region; client-tailored food boxes with a nutrition education and cooking skills curriculum; and a weekend lunch distribution and outreach targeting people experiencing homelessness. Food For Thought strives to eliminate barriers to food access by taking food directly into areas of need, partnering with trusted community institutions (churches, schools and community centers), and offering fresh and healthy food choices. The VISTA member will focus on building capacity at the mobile food pantry sites and enhancing our pre-existing partnership with local growers and farmers via the Toledo Farmers Market.
