Group works to knock out hunger in final summer months

summer food program(

TOLEDO, OHIO (WNWO)-- Kids are about to head back to class and a non-profit is making sure they do not go hungry in these final weeks of summer.

Connecting Kids to Meals partners with the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library to bring kids hot lunches 5 days a week.

Currently at the Washington Branch they feed more than 70 kids a day.

In June they served 973 lunches at that location.

Librarians say the program has genuinely made a difference.

"They're all very very excited about the lunches when they come," said Librarian Eric Pfeffinger.

The group will serve kids through the end of the week.

Tomorrow we'll give you a behind-the scenes look from preparation to lunch time.
