Share in our Mission

St. Louis Area Foodbank understands that food insecurity is a complex issue that calls for a multi-pronged solution. We distribute food throughout our 26-county service area to meet the immediate need, and we believe larger systemic changes must occur to see a hunger-free future. We work with a network of empowered citizens, passionate partner organizations, and engaged elected officials to advocate for policies and systems that address both immediate challenges and the root causes of food insecurity.

Keep up-to-date on all the work the foodbank and our network is doing on our monthly blog. Learn more about upcoming legislation, Foodbank initiatives, and the policy that impacts food access for families in this community.

Keep the Conversation Going

Engage your community in the fight against hunger by shedding light on the reality of food insecurity in your own backyard. Talk to friends, family, and colleagues about the solutions to hunger. The more we recognize the problem and collaborate to address the need, the healthier our communities will be.

Make a Difference

Become a hunger advocate today by helping us influence the policy and priorities that ensure a hunger-free tomorrow! When you let your elected official know that hunger is a cause you care about, you help create positive change for all those who struggle to put food on the table.

Lend your voice, share your knowledge, make a difference.
