Jill Bunge, FFT & SSFAC Refugee Food Box Program

Food For Thought (FFT) will partner with Social Services for the Arab Community (SSFAC) to provide monthly food boxes tailored to the dietary preferences of Arab refugees and immigrant families for much needed food assistance as they resettle into work, recreation, and life in the Toledo community. The Refugee Food Box Program will extend Toledo’s rich history of offering welcome to immigrants who bring incredible experiences, knowledge, and culture to our community. SSFAC currently has a caseload of 22 immigrant and refugee families (79 total individuals in all households) who are in need of food assistance.

Funding from SOUP will allow both organizations to cover two months of startup costs to source, pack, and deliver the food boxes directly to recipients.
