our history

For nearly 50 years, the St. Louis Area Foodbank has been working to create a pathway to nutritional security for those in our community.

During that time, we’ve learned to always be ready for new developments, open to better understanding, and willing to try different approaches. We’ve come a long way, but there is still work to be done.
