Help the Youth at Adventure Central Get Cooking
Adventure Central (AC), located at Wesleyan MetroPark, serves 600 meals a week to students in west Dayton. Offering free after-school programming and summer camps, AC grows the minds, bodies and character of the 95 youth it serves during the school year.
AC staff also use the kitchen as a classroom, teaching students about the importance of fresh produce and how to prepare healthy meals. Such heavy use means AC has a great need for more space, storage, updated kitchen amenities and more.
A fundraising effort is underway to support the new kitchen space that will act as an environment to nourish both minds and bodies.
The Five Rivers MetroParks Foundation is 71% to its fundraising goal but needs help from the community to complete this important project. You can help today by making a tax-deductible donation online.
