Our goal is to alleviate hunger in the St. Louis area and the surrounding community by soliciting, collecting and growing food for distribution.


Our services include:

  • ​Emergency food program;
  • Household items program


Food is distributed according to individual needs and within guidelines based on the family size. Emergency boxes are available daily and are prepackaged to help a family in trouble.
