Jeans BeCause – St. Louis Area Food Bank

The St. Louis Area Food Bank was one of our August Jeans BeCause recipients.  The St.Louis Area Food Bank began its service to the community in 1975. Today, they continue to be an organization that relies on the generosity of others to make a difference in the lives of those I need of food assistance. Over the years, they have grown to be the bi-state region’s largest non-profit 501(c)(3) food distribution charity dedicated to feeding those in need.  

The St. Louis Area Foodbank feeds roughly 57,100 hungry individuals per week by distributing food through its network of 500 partner agencies.

The mission statement of St. Louis Area Foodbank is simply stated: Feed hungry people by distributing food throughout the bi-state region and engage our community in the fight against hunger.
