Hope for the Hungry Food Drive, June 2019
Currently, one in six people and one in four children
are at risk of not having enough food in our community, and 15.8% of people in
Northwest Ohio do not have reliable access to enough nutritious food to lead
healthy lives. That’s why our Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank is, once again,
partnering with 13abc, Dave White Chevrolet, and Cedar Point as part of the
Hope for the Hungry Food Drive. Summer time is a crucial time for food
donations as children who rely on school breakfasts and free lunches don’t have
access to those meals.
now, you can donate non-perishable or canned goods to help feed families in
Northwest Ohio. The food bank also helps provide non-food and personal care
items, so those donations are also welcome. Even a donation of $1 helps by
providing five meals to people in need in Northwest Ohio.
Anyone can help families in our community by dropping off donations at one of three locations between now and June 30, 2019:
4247 Dorr St.
Toledo, Ohio 43607
Dave White Chevrolet
5880 Monroe St,
Sylvania, OH 43560
Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank
24 East Woodruff Avenue
Toledo, OH 43604
also be a drive-thru donation event at Dave White Chevrolet on Friday, June 14.
13abc anchor and reporter Kristian Brown will host the event. It runs from Noon
also give from the comfort of your own home through the Hope for the Hungry virtual food drive. Just
