It is the only local affiliate of America's Second Harvest (now Feeding America), and is the largest hunger-relief organization supported by the United Way of Greater St. Louis. The Foodbank is also a local distributor of USDA commodities for both Missouri and Illinois.

There is so much need for the Foodbank services in our area, and they make it sooooo easy for all of us to help in a small way. If we all do just a little, big things do happen! We've been coming for years and have seen it expand and improve. The people there are great! The FoodBank is the best volunteer opportunity around!!!

In only 3 hours 20 volunteers can make 15,000 meals able to be distributed to hungry people in your own community. Its terrific to be apart of something so effective.
