Through generous donations and the wonderful support of churches and individuals throughout Saint Louis, every holiday season for the last 25 years we have been able to offer special holiday food baskets to families in need. These bags are filled with everything necessary to provide each family with a wonderful feast on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
This year, for the first time, our holiday food bags will be filled entirely with items the clients CHOOSE for themselves. Rather than providing a pre-packed bag filled with items we think the clients would like, we are allowing them a variety of options, including stuffing, pasta and pasta sauce, canned vegetables and fruits, pie fillings, and bakery items.
On the day of distribution (November 25th) each family will receive a $20 Schnucks gift card to be used towards a turkey, ham, or other item for their meal and then they will be invited to “shop” our holiday food “store” and make selections that best fit their needs.
We are excited about this change as we continue to strive towards creating a food ministry that best serves the needs of our community while reducing food waste.
Be a part of this incredible holiday tradition. Each $30 donation will provide 1 Thanksgiving or Christmas meal for a family in need (This includes the $20 Schnucks gift card).
