We can not fulfill our mission alone.

There are nearly 50,000 kids in our area who face hunger regularly and that number continues to rise each year. While we receive reimbursment funds under the Child Nutrition Programs and grants we also rely on donations from the community to carry out our mission.

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.

Contact us at 419.720.1106 or [email protected].


Thank You For Helping Us Reach Our Goal!

  • Every donation is being matched by our hunger action superheroes and match partners!
  • By reaching our goal, you've ensured that kids in our community have the healthy Afterschool meals.
  • There's always still time to get involved as a donor, volunteer, or help us spread the word!

Your change can change the lives of hungry kids in our community.

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.
