Toledo NWO Food Bank - Hunger & Health
The Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank Inc., is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. It was founded in 1984 to solicit, collect and store donations of surplus food and grocery products from all segments of the food industry, as well as solicit and collect monetary donations for the purchase of food products. We then serve as clearinghouse for these foodstuffs for agencies, such as food pantries and day care centers that feed the hungry throughout the region, providing them access to wholesome food. Our qualified agencies distribute the collected product to the hungry in Northwest Ohio. Member agencies include emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, rehabilitation centers, special programs for the elderly, group homes, holiday food basket programs and non-profit day care centers. Our mission is to enable other community organizations to end hunger. We strive to maximize community resources by effectively obtaining and distributing food through a food collection and distribution system. The Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank has programs that help children, seniors and families receive food through its 250 member agencies across eight counties in northwestern Ohio.
