Fresh Food Distribution – Mondays and Fridays
Fresh Produce, deli and pastry items, bread and periodically dairy and eggs are distributed every Monday and Friday around 9:00 am. This food is donated by area grocery stores.
Mobile Market Wednesday
In addition, our mobile market occurs the first Wednesday of every month. The St. Louis Area Foodbank delivers pallets of fresh food to be distributed to our clients. Because this food is perishable, it is distributed immediately to anyone in need.
