Financial Support

Donors enable us to carry out our mission of building stronger communities by empowering people with food and hope.

With the help of generous people like you, the St. Louis Area Foodbank provided more than 35 million meals to people in 26 Missouri and Illinois counties last year. 97% of our resources go toward food distribution, so you can be sure your donation is feeding our neighbors in need.  In fact, with every dollar, the St. Louis Area Foodbank can provide four meals to neighbors in need.
