Food Justice in Dayton

Meals in Flight started in Fall 2017 in response to the food justice issues happening in Dayton. Since Dayton is a food desert, many residents do not have access to healthy, fresh produce. A team of students came together to brainstorm ways to help the City overcome some of these barriers regarding food access. In collaboration with UD Dining Services and Dietetics students, the Center for Social Concern created the Meals in Flight program. Meals in Flight aims to prepare over 300 meals on one Sunday for a local, non-profit homelessness or hunger relief agency. By participating in Meals in Flight, organizations have the potential to impact the Dayton community by preparing and delivering the meals.

What is Meals in Flight?

Meals in Flight is a pre-planned service opportunity you and your organization members can sign up for during the semester on Sundays. The Meals in Flight Leadership Team is seeking organizations that wish to do pre-planned service together on Sunday afternoons. There are three shifts every Sunday afternoon between 12-4, each shift lasting about 1.5hrs and needing about 5-6 students. If you are interested in being part of this new program, please complete the form below and we will contact you with more details.
