Feed Four More

In 2013, Feeding America (www.feedingamerica.org) reported that in the United States, more than one out of five children lives in a household with food insecurity, which means they do not always know where they will find their next meal. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), in 2012, 15.9 million children under 18 in the United States live in this condition – unable to consistently access nutritious and adequate amounts of food necessary for a healthy life. Feed Four More is a customer and team member donation program where money can be donated to purchase meals for families of four in need. All of the money collected this holiday season will be donated to St. Louis Area Foodbank, who will purchase food from the proceeds for those they serve. Please join us in our ambitious goal to support those in need in St. Louis, sharing the bounty in our lives with those who can’t afford to buy food for the holidays. St. Louis Area Foodbank staff and volunteers will be in our store on the following dates to help spread the word about this important program.

  • 11/1 (10am-12pm)

  • 11/8 (10am-12pm)

  • 11/16 (1-3pm)

  • 11/23 (9-11am)

  • 11/29 (9-11am)
