Miami Valley Meals uses chef-led teams to transforms recovered (a.k.a. “rescued”) foods into hearty and nutritious prepared meals that are then distributed to a network of nonprofit partners serving the hungry in the Miami Valley—free of charge. They currently distribute an average of 3,700 meals per week to 45+ partners per month.
These meals play a critical role in the full spectrum of services that help the underserved people in our communities. By providing our network of partner organizations with free meals, we bolster their food inventory and free up resources for their other programs, such as providing shelter, healthcare services, addiction recovery programs, and other assistance.
As part of their 3rd anniversary Miami Valley Meals has just introduced 3 chef-crafted spice blends. These blends are uniquely crafted by MVM chefs Angie, Laura, and Patricio and produced locally in partnership with Big Axe Spice.
Free of salt, sugar, and gluten, these spice blends are friendly for any diet and flexible enough to use in just about anything! From meats and marinades to dips and snacks, the possibilities are endless.
Each purchase supports our mission to transform donated food into nutritious meals for the hungry in Dayton.
