Celebrate 15 years and lots of ways to get involved

Connecting Kids to Meals is one of Ohio’s largest summer food programs working to end hunger. We’ve been feeding hungry kids in need for 15 years. From Oct. 12 through the end of the year, we’re asking you to get involved and make a difference in the life of a hungry child.

Locations All Across Greater Toledo

More than 145 sites have generously opened their doors to alleviate hunger for children in northwest Ohio. Our goal is to reach every hungry child in every neighborhood.

Our Mission

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.
