Join Food For Thought

Food For Thought feeds Toledo thanks to incredible generosity of the entire community. In addition to the financial support that fuels all of our efforts, our volunteers assist in every facet of our work. We invite you to join us today. For up to date information about changes to services and available resources in light of COVID-19 please see our "UPDATES" section below.

How You Can Help

A little goes a long way! An elderly woman we served last week broke down in tears thanking us for still being open saying she would not have had much to eat for the next two weeks without our help. We invite you to help us continue to make fresh produce and shelf stable products available during this uncertain time. Please click below to donate and help us feed our neighbors. To donate canned and shelf stable food items, call 419-972-0022 or e-mail
We are beyond grateful for your friendship and partnership today and every day. It takes all of us coming together to weather this type of storm. Let's ensure we all have enough to eat while waiting for it to pass.
