ZESTOLEDO donates $12,000 to Toledo NWO Food Bank

. February 2, 2021.

Although ZESTOLEDO was forced to cancel its 2020 Spring “Party with a Purpose” due to the COVID outbreak, the organization was still able to donate over $60,000 to area charities last year. Among the recipients was the Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank, which received $12,000 for its BackPack Program. Part of the Feeding America Network, the BackPack Program works to provide hungry children who rely on school meals with additional food they can take home over the weekend or on school breaks. Thanks to donors like ZESTOLEDO, the program provided over 25,000 meals to children in 2020.
