Job Description:

21-22 Share Shelter Meal Coordinator

Share has served people experiencing homelessness and food insecurity in Clark County since 1979 when a small group came together to offer bagged lunches to people living on the streets. Today, Share offers emergency shelters for men, women, and families, a rapid re-housing program, permanent supportive housing, a robust outreach program, and hunger response programs that provide meals and supplemental food supplies to the community. Access to consistently healthy meals is pivotal to clients as they work with Share staff to secure housing and establish a path toward increasing income. The Shelter Meal Coordinator will support Share in all aspects of meal preparation, including selecting menus, checking inventory, and preparing shopping lists. Members will also provide clients with nutrition education resources (including pamphlets, fliers, and coloring sheets) with the goal of cultivating skills and interest in healthier food choices. Members will also support Share in training community volunteers in operating kitchen equipment and following meal distribution procedures. By facilitating access to a variety of nutritious meals and educating clients on healthy meal preparation, the project aims to provide clients with the skills to prepare their own healthy meals upon exiting shelter and ultimately reduce illness and emergency medical usage caused by poor nutrition. Members will be cross-trained to support Share's Hot Meals Program as needed. Further help on this page can be found by clicking here.
