A group of Toledo residents founded the Toledo Neighbors Program in March 2022 with the intent of building the nonprofit into a hub where people can share food and other resources without restrictions, helping each other with the dignity and respect neighbors show neighbors.

As of May 2023, the Toledo Neighbors Program estimated it regularly served 100 families per week, an estimated 300 to 400 people.
