These children are not invisible to us.
Connecting Kids to Meals is the leading non-profit organization in NW Ohio fighting childhood hunger through our summer meal program . We also provide meals to kids enrolled in after school programs during the academic year. Last year we provided more than 500,000 meals to hungry kids.

Local Leaders Join Together to Combat Child Hunger at Fall Luncheon
Last week, Connecting Kids to Meals hosted our first-ever public event to help raise awareness for the important and pervasive issue of local child hunger. More than 200 local business and community leaders took part in the sold-out luncheon, and they left with a greater understanding that our region’s most vulnerable – our children, the elderly, disabled and the working poor – shouldn’t have to wonder where their next meal will come from. Hunger in our community isn’t going away.
The mission of Connecting Kids to Meals (formerly, Feed Lucas County Children) is to provide hot, nutritious meals at no cost to children in low-income and underserved areas throughout the entire year. As a nonprofit organization, we fulfill this mission by partnering with community locations where kids gather during the summer months and throughout the academic year. Since we began operating in 2002, we have served over 5 million meals to hungry children in need.
