The holidays can be financially stressful for anyone, but even more so this year due to inflation and the rising cost of food. While some are fortunate enough to fill their table with an indulgent dinner spread, many families in the Toledo area struggle to make ends meet. A record number of people in Toledo face food insecurity this holiday season. For those barely meeting their basic needs, the holiday season is a harsh reminder of how little support is provided to low-income households.

To help relieve some of your holiday stress, we have put together a list of all the nonprofit organizations offering holiday food assistance and free Thanksgiving dinner, Turkeys, and other food giveaways in the Toledo area.
