Fighting Hunger Feeding Hope
At the St. Louis Area Foodbank, we are working to create a stronger, healthier bi-state region where no one goes to bed hungry.
Everyone deserves access to food and the promise of a healthy diet which is why the St. Louis Area Foodbank is committed to building a stronger, healthier bi-state region where nobody goes to bed hungry.
With the dedicated partnership of over 500 hunger-relief programs and local agencies – including soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and residential programs – we are responding to hunger in communities across 26 counties in Missouri and Illinois by distributing food to more than 392,000 people every year.
Since opening in 1975, and with the tremendous support and generosity of the community, the St. Louis Area Foodbank has grown to become our region’s largest food distribution charity dedicated to feeding those in need. Together, we are feeding people and working to address the root causes of hunger for lasting impact every day.
