Volunteers Needed for The Summer Food Service Program

With media reporting both widespread childhood obesity and a lack of nutritious food available to many children, local residents are needed to tackle both of these issues here in Darke County during the upcoming summer months.

Help make sure nutritious meals are available to local children this summer by volunteering with EUM Church Outreach Ministries’ summer food service program. The organization needs volunteers to organize, prepare, serve and clean up lunches for local children during the summer break from school. Training will be provided by both the Ohio Department of Education and a site supervisor. This position is available Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. between June 6 and August 12. Volunteers should be at least 18 years of age. Children under the age of 18 are welcome to volunteer with a parent.

“The Summer Food Service Program provides nutritious, hot lunches for the children of Darke County,” says Kristy Cutarelli, EUM Outreach Ministries Coordinator. “This program is a wonderful resource for our community and would not be available without the support of our volunteers.”

To learn more about this volunteer opportunity or other opportunities within our community, please contact HandsOn West Central Ohio at (937) 548-8002, ext. 211, or visit www.handsonwestcentralohio.org. HandsOn West Central Ohio, including Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, is a program of Council on Rural Services.
