Our April Jeans BeCause recipient is the St. Louis Area Foodbank. 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 43,000 people in 26 counties each 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.
