Free Toledo Meal and Delivery Options during Coronavirus

Updated: Mar 16, 2020

The Toledo community bands together to provide food for kids.

By Erin Schoen Marsh


As Ohio students face three weeks of no school due to safety precautions to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), feeding kids in need has become a top priority for the Toledo area community. Private businesses have graciously offered to provide free meals, and school districts are offering grab-and-go meal options for their students.
