St. Louis Area Foodbank
2 year commitment
Food banks and food pantries play a key role in meeting the nutritional needs of low-income children and families, who have less access to nutritious, affordable foods and are disproportionately impacted by obesity and diet-related disease. Our food bank partners make sure that times of sacrifice don’t also mean sacrificing good health.
The St. Louis Area Food Bank will receive support from PHA to implement a comprehensive nutrition ranking system over the next two years. PHA will provide technical assistance to help the St. Louis Area Foodbank understand the nutritional quality of its inventory, enhancing food equity for the communities they serve.
The St. Louis Area Foodbank serves those facing food insecurity in 26 counties across Missouri and Illinois. As a member of Feeding America, the Foodbank joins nearly 200 foodbanks across the United States in filling the meal gap. Everyone deserves access to healthy and nutritious foods. Through our network of partners and programs, we are nourishing people, empowering communities, and transforming systems to revolutionize the hunger relief system.
