Fresh Thyme Giving Bag Program

Connecting Kids to Meals encourages you to check out the amazing Fresh Thyme Giving Bag Program! The program offers a special Giving Bag featuring a Giving Tag which allows shoppers to direct a $1 donation to qualifying non-profits. This is a great opportunity for Connecting Kids to Meals to raise money simply through the sale of a reusable shopping bag! Visit Fresh Thyme at 5105 Monroe Street and buy a few of the Giving Bags – all donations go directly to feeding kids in our community!

And remember to spread the word – the more bags purchased, the bigger the donation is that goes directly toward feeding kids in need throughout Northwest Ohio.

Don’t miss this opportunity to help feed kids who need our help!

You can help us fulfill our mission.

The fulfillment of our mission to feed hungry kids cannot be accomplished on our own. We need your help. We can’t do it alone.

Please consider donating your time or resources to help us. Over 30,000 kids face hunger in our area. With your help, we can fight child hunger and impact the lives of those who often times can’t help themselves.


Connecting Kids to Meals serves meals to thousands of children per day. We are a longstanding and trusted community partner.

Please help us reach more hungry kids with a financial donation. Your gift will help reduce child hunger, stabilize and strengthen families, as well as transform a community.

Our Partners


Each day Connecting Kids To Meals provides thousands of healthy meals at no cost to kids in low-income and underserved areas in Northwest Ohio. Our volunteers are key in making this process happen.
Several business and community organization employees and individuals come to our downtown facility monthly to volunteer. These volunteers package plates, utensils, condiments, snacks and other items making distribution of complete meal to our sites very efficient. Feedback from volunteers indicates that they really enjoy their time here.
Some of those that have helped us are:
Downtown Toledo, First Federal Bank, Kroger, Lourdes University, Oregon Kiwanis Club, ProMedica, Lucas County Prosecutor’s Office, Toledo Refining Company,  Toledo Refining Company, UT Women’s Basketball Team, Fifth Third Bank , Mercy College of Medicine, UT Nursing Program, Designetics, and St. Luke’s Hospital.
Please join our fight against child hunger and give your time to help us provide healthy, well-balanced meals to kids in need.
