Community Assistance Programs
Not everyone who faces food insecurity simply needs food. Food insecurity can mean a household is experiencing challenges paying for food, medicine, housing, childcare, transportation, or utility bills. Simply providing food isn’t always the solution.
The St. Louis Area Foodbank doesn’t just help people find food. We work together with partner organizations and government agencies to assist with everything from SNAP applications and Medicaid resources.
support beyond food
Together with our partners, the St. Louis Area Foodbank is working to provide a wide range of programs and resources to assist our neighbors with the many challenges they may be experiencing.
