This year, the greenhouse and gardens of MVS’ Zorniger Environmental Laboratory have been feeding Dayton through the school’s partnership with South Community Behavioral Healthcare. As part of South Community’s “Shaping Up” program, South Community clients have been receiving monthly meal boxes containing nutritious, locally grown produce from MVS and other community partners. Past meal box recipes include Simply Roasted Vegetables, Keto Peach Cobbler, and Italian Sausage Bowls with Swiss Chard. Through preparing these healthy and organic meals, South Community’s “Shaping Up” participants practice basic kitchen skills, gain independence, and get an emotional boost. South Community social worker Kimberly Conley writes of the most recent meal kit: “These boxes not only provided a nourishing meal, they also lifted the spirits of some who have not been able to leave their home in months!” MVS is proud to partner with this remarkable community organization!
