Meals in Flight

Food Justice in Dayton

Meals in Flight started in Fall 2017 in response to the food justice issues happening in Dayton. Since Dayton is a food desert, many residents do not have access to healthy, fresh produce. A team of students came together to brainstorm ways to help the City overcome some of these barriers regarding food access. In collaboration with UD Dining Services and Dietetics students, the Center for Social Concern created the Meals in Flight program. Meals in Flight aims to prepare over 300 meals on one Sunday for a local, non-profit homelessness or hunger relief agency. By participating in Meals in Flight, you have the potential to impact the Dayton community by preparing and delivering the meals.

What is Meals in Flight?

Meals in Flight is a pre-planned service opportunity you or your organization members can sign up for during the semester on Sundays. The Meals in Flight Leadership Team is seeking those who wish to do pre-planned service together on Sunday afternoons. There are three shifts on Sunday afternoon between 12-4, each shift lasting about 1.5hrs and needing about 5-6 students. If you are interested in being part of this new program, please register using the link below and we will contact you with more details.


Dates for Meals in Flight for the spring 2020 term are February 2, February 16, March 1, March 8, April 5 and April 19. For more information, contact the Meals In Flight program at
