Diced in Dayton

Sample tastes from your favorite local chefs and support a great cause at the Diced in Dayton Chef’s Challenge. Diced in Dayton is an interactive, food-filled event that showcases and celebrates the creativity of local chefs as they craft unique dishes from a set of mystery ingredients. Participating chefs must meet the challenge that MVM chefs face each day: how to transform unpredictable ingredients into something new and delicious. Guests will delight in the ingenuity and flavor of the dishes while learning about what Miami Valley Meals does to help those who are food insecure in our community. At the end of the night, one chef will be named champion.

Since we first launched our program in 2020, our team of professional chefs have recovered thousands of pounds of surplus food from a variety of local sources and transformed it into more than 600,000 meals for our hungry neighbors.
