The Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank is leading the fight against hunger in our area and playing a vital role in solving the need for nutritious food. We are working to eliminate hunger in eight counties in Northwest Ohio and we rely on the generosity of individuals and groups to achieve this goal.
One in five children goes to bed hungry. We have increased our distribution by 57% in the past two years. Last year, we provided enough food for over 7,500,000 meals to people in Northwest Ohio. Last year, we served 576,800 families, children and senior citizens.
The need for food is a continuing struggle. Food banks around the country face growing demand, despite improvements in the economy. Many families are still underemployed and struggling. As a member of Feeding America, we not only impact our local community in the fight against hunger, but we are part of a national solution.
Thank you for joining us in the fight against hunger!
