Imagination Station works with COSI, Toledo Northwestern Ohio Foodbank, and others to distribute 1,000 study kits and meals to families.

TOLEDO, Ohio – Toledo’s Imagination Station has partnered with the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) in Columbus, the Toledo Northwestern Ohio Foodbank, State of Ohio, other museums, cultural organizations, and local officials to distribute free STEAM kits and meals on Friday. Meals are provided by the Toledo Northwestern Ohio Foodbank.

This distribution event is part of the Ohio State Distance Learning Initiative. The program is an innovative effort led by COSI in conjunction with national museums, food providers, libraries, and cultural institutions to provide 50,000 free hands-on science kits called Learning Lunchboxes.

These boxes are intended to be distributed with the meal programs and feature five activities that are in line with Ohio’s learning standards. The Learning Lunchboxes are themed and promote science, technology, engineering, art, math (STEAM), culture, history and more.

Head to Erie Street Market on 525 North Market Street on Friday between 9am and 11am for a free learning lunch box and family dinner. The quantity is limited and sales will continue while supplies last.

Toledo is the Ohio Distance Learning Initiative’s fourth road show stop. Past sales events include Portsmouth, Newark, Cincinnati and more as part of the Ohio Distance Learning Initiative.
