List: Food pantries across northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan

Food banks have seen a massive increase in use since the COVID-19 pandemic began earlier in 2020 and the need is expected to remain high heading into the new year.

TOLEDO, Ohio — Even with the promise of a $600 check most Americans will get as a result of a $900 billion stimulus bill signed by President Trump on Sunday, many people are still struggling to keep food on the table.

Food banks have seen a massive increase since the COVID-19 pandemic began earlier in 2020.

Earlier in December, an Associated Press analysis of the anti-hunger organization Feeding America’s food banks found a nearly 57 percent increase in food distribution compared with last year.
