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.
