  3. 3. Youngstown Eats:Fueling Kids Fuels NeighborhoodsIdea: ● Design, assemble, and deliver Ready-To-Eat (RTE) meals to kids [16 years old and younger] in Youngstown, Ohio. ● Along the way, build a local-food-based community enterprise infrastructure [easily replicated model for other communities]
  4. 4. Youngstown Eats:Fueling Kids Fuels NeighborhoodsRationale: Focus on hungry kids ● One-third of the kids in Youngstown go to bed hungry ● Many organizations in Youngstown are committed to address food insecurity issue, but do not have a food product to deliver ● Provides common agenda for currently disconnected food system components ● Start with what kids can eat not with some product somebody wants to produce ● Community members build their own local food system

  6. 6. Poverty Statistics for Youngstown
  7. 7. Local Ready-To-Eat Meal Flow 3 Prepare 2 RTE Meals ● Product Source 4 ● Pre-Packaged ● Processed Distribute ● Pick-up Ingredients ● Raw RTE Meals ● Delivered for RTE Meals ● In Advance ● Per Daily Menu ● Per Order 1 5 Define Consume Meal RTE Meals● Children / Families Involved ● Children Experience Food Security● Recipes Developed and Tested ● Children Eat the Food● RTE Meal Flow Initiated ● Children Engage in the Meal Flow
  8. 8. Local Ready-To-Eat Meal Volume Requirements 3 Prepare 2 RTE Meals Source 4 Ingredients Distribute for RTE Meals RTE Meals 1 5 Define Consume RTE Meals RTE MealsPopulation of Youngstown: 66,982Population (under 18) of Youngstown (25.8%): 17,286Youth Population Food Insecure (33%): 5,762Meals (x 3) per day for 2,000 calories per person: 17,286Meals required per year (x 365): 6,309,390Total (healthy, affordable, tasty) calories / year 12,618,780,000
  9. 9. Which Food Groups Provide 1,600 Calories for $1.40? Based on a standard 2000-calorie diet, the researchers found a diet consisting primarily of calorie dense foods costs $3.52 a day, but a diet consisting primarily of low-calorie food costs $36.32 a day. The average American eats a variety of foods throughout the day, spending $7 a day. Data Source: USDA

  15. 15. Youngstown Eats:Fueling Kids Fuels NeighborhoodsApproach and Timeline: ● By Dec 1, 2011 - Convene a Group of "Consultants" [Local Community Members...to Initiate RTE Meal Flow] ○ Reflect Diversity of Community by Neighborhood ○ Represent Multiple Capitals: Human, Built, Natural, and Financial ● By Feb 1, 2012 - Define the RTE Meals ○ Direct Involvement by Participants throughout the RTE Meal Flow ■ "Ownership" of Menus ■ Influence with Owners of Capitals ○ Taste Test and Selection of Recipes
  16. 16. Youngstown Eats:Fueling Kids Fuels NeighborhoodsApproach and Timeline: ● By Apr 1, 2011 - Assemble and Test the Meals ○ Capacity ○ Scalability ○ Food Safety ■ Licensure of Operators and Facility ■ Type of Organization, e.g., Cooperatives
  17. 17. Youngstown Eats:Fueling Kids Fuels NeighborhoodsApproach and Timeline: ● May 1, 2012 - Identify: ○ Food Sources ■ Food Distributors ■ Regional Food Hubs ■ Local Producers / Processors ○ Distribution process ■ Institutions, e.g., Educational, Faith-Based, Community Care ■ Non-Profit Organizations, e.g., YMCA, etc. ■ Places of Employment ● Sep 1, 2012 - Identify Business Opportunities ○ Resources for Business Startup
