Come to the Table
The Come to the Table program was developed by ProMedica to raise awareness about hunger in our communities and to increase access to healthier food in under-served areas.
Hunger is often a hidden problem in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. More than one out of five families in our region receives aid to help feed their families. This epidemic leads to significant health problems for community members, especially children.
Children’s growth and ability to learn can suffer without proper nutrition. In adults, poor diets contribute to diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, high blood pressure, bone and muscle loss, and other chronic health issues.
