Dayton, Ohio – In collaboration with Miami Valley Meals, Sinclair Community College will increase the number of meals available to students in need.
Dayton-based Miami Valley Meals will provide fresh and frozen meals to the Sinclair Student Food Pantry, which will also have vegan and vegetarian options.
Sinclair Community College’s Manager of Student and Community Engagement, Matt Massie, said that “No student should go hungry, and we are incredibly grateful to Miami Valley Meals for partnering with us to address food insecurity.”
Since its establishment in January of 2020, the Student Food Pantry has been meeting the needs of all currently enrolled students. Food and hygiene products can be found in the pantry, as well as cleaning materials, diapers, and formula. There are also refrigerated and frozen products available.
The Sinclair Student Food Pantry served over 250 students during the Fall Semester of 2021, according to the college. In a recent survey, Sinclair found that 35% of its students are struggling to get enough food.
According to Amanda DeLotelle, Executive Director at Miami Valley Meals, “Our partnership with Sinclair Community College allows Miami Valley Meals to further our mission of using our culinary skills to provide valuable support to existing organizations, all while feeding the hungry and reducing food waste.”
