St. Louis Area Food Assistance

Posted by Schevus on December 14, 2008

I have written extensively so far about various activities to help those in need. I have been getting a steady stream of search result hits looking for assitance, so I want to start covering some resources for those in need.

Food is probably the most basic human need. With the tough economic times people are forced to make impossible decisions. Do you buy food or pay the bills? Do you eat or do your children eat? Therefore food assistance is vital for many people.

Unfortunately food pantries are stretched to the breaking point, so if you are in a position to be able to donate I encourage you to do so. For those in the St. Louis area you can find information about donating or volunteering here. For those elsewhere, I encourage you to look at Feeding America.

However, if you are actually in need of food there are many locations that provide assistance (hopefully you can find one that is not completely exhausted). If you live in Missouri you can find a list of locations here. If you live in Illinois, you can find a list here.

If you live in the St. Louis area and have investigated these lists and are still unable to provide food for your family please leave a comment or email me at schevus [at] gmail [dot] com. Even if you do not live in the area, feel free to contact me and I will try to help you find resources in your area. I will not sit idly by as people go hungry!
