In Ohio, one in seven people and one in five children struggle with hunger. Catholic Social Services of the Miami Valley provides a spectrum of services to address the ongoing crisis of poverty and hunger in the Dayton community. CSSMV’s Choice Food Pantry is working to meet the region’s emergency food needs. Funds will be used to help construct a 6,000-square-foot pantry with a loading dock that will enable daily food deliveries to be made safely and directly indoors and out of the elements. It also will improve accessibility by adding an elevator for case management clients, staff and guests, as well as add inventory storage space, new refrigeration, a ground-floor welcome center and community room.
