Background: Founded in 2011, Sunday Suppers is a community-based program that works with families experiencing poverty who want to improve their health and well-being. Every week at Sunday Suppers, families share a multi-course healthy dinner around a family table. In addition to eating together, families participate in pre-dinner community conversations and workshops focused on health and nutrition, cultural foodways, easy and accessible cooking techniques, and the importance of family meals. In addition to supporting families to cook and eat nourishing meals together, Sunday Suppers strives to foster long lasting connections and genuine leadership amongst our community of participants past and present. We dream of and work towards a day when Sunday Suppers will be run by and for the community it serves. To this end, we strongly welcome applicants from communities similar to those of our participating families. Sunday Suppers operates in Kensington and Germantown and is in the process of expanding and adding additional sites.
The Program Facilitator will be responsible for Sunday Suppers’ programming for families every week at designated program sites. Sunday Suppers provides a basic framework for the curriculum which the facilitator will tailor each week to design a program that will either be implemented by the facilitator, the Chef / Educator, or by an outside presenter recruited by the facilitator. Programming entails providing families hands-on lessons and workshops that are exciting, motivating and reinforce learning. The Program Facilitator works from a set of core values and ethics consistent with the concepts of empowerment, collaboration, and learning. In addition the Program Facilitator participates in the communication plan and may assist the Director in evaluation and other data management activities.
