SeaGate Food Bank was the first food bank in the Toledo area, collecting and distributing food to pantries and programs that serve individuals. Today we serve Lucas, Wood, Fulton, Henry, Williams, Defiance, Ottawa, and Sandusky, and share overflow of donated products with other Northwest Ohio communities.
Our “Senior Box Program” delivers over 5,600 senior food supplements each month. We also help seniors over 60 and their families apply for the USDA-funded Commodity Supplemental Food Program. We provide food support to nearly 1,000 local veterans’ families.
We help individuals and families apply for The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP), federally funded and administered by the state of Ohio. SeaGate Food Bank has only ten full-time staff, but hundreds of dedicated community volunteers and sponsors who share our commitment to eradicate hunger.
