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 6 million meals to hungry kids in need.
