Happy Friday, Toledo! Since the next time I write this blog, it will be just 3 days before Mother’s Day, I went ahead and compiled a list of Mother’s Day take out menus, so you have time to get your order in before the cut off date!  Also, there are some really fun things happening in Toledo this week. I’m looking forward to the Facebook live that Boochy Mama’s is doing tomorrow at 10am with Luckey Road Lavender Co. They’re going to be discussing all things lavender and farming in Northwest Ohio.

Mother’s Day Takeout Options

  • Stella’s in Perrysburg has put together a huge buffet brunch menu. It says it feeds 4, but it sure looks like a lot more food than that!

  • Mason Jar Tap & Grill has an amazing looking Mother’s Day menu available for pick up. Let me just say this… “Bloody Mary Deviled Eggs”.  I have no idea what that would taste like, but I’d love to know.  The meal feeds 4-6 people for $75.

  • Brandywine Country Club is offering their famous Mother’s Day meals to go.  They range in size and price from 2-8 people and $37.50-149.99.

Ways to give back

  • There’s a new movement called “Toledo Plus One” where you can donate to provide meals for local healthcare workers and first-responders. Even better, all food is purchased from local restaurants!

  • The Toledo Food Bank has a virtual food drive aimed to support the increased need for food in our community. This is a great way to support them in a safe manner and it capitalizes on the bulk purchasing power of the food bank. (For $1, they can provide 5 meals!)

  • ProMedica is collecting homemade fabric masks at bins near the entrances of many health facility locations. Click here for the information and locations.

  • Fowl and Fodder created a new service called 4-1-Dine.
