Journey of Hope
The St. Louis Area Foodbank has nourished the community with over 500 million pounds of food since opening its doors in 1975. Thanks to the generous support of our partners, we are able to serve nearly 400,000 people each year.
Like our organization, our mission has evolved because we believe that food is a powerful catalyst for change that doesn’t just feed individuals; it empowers people and makes entire communities stronger. This document highlights our goals for the first 3 years of our ambitious 7-year plan, which outlines strategies designed to help us lead the bi-state region’s hunger relief efforts like never before. They include the collection and use of real-time data; the infusion of technology to optimize our operations; a laser focus on placing the needs of our partners and clients at the center of our decisions; and a disciplined approach to food acquisition with a focus on healthy foods. This journey is inspired by our vision of a stronger, healthier bi-state region where no one goes to bed hungry.
