Did you know that 1 in 8 people in the Greater Saint Louis area depend on food pantries, homeless shelters, etc. for daily meals? St. Louis Food Rescue (STLFR) is dedicated to alleviating hunger in our community by saving provisions that would have been discarded from local food retailers and immediately delivering them to the organizations we serve. We currently save about 5,000lbs of food per week. STLFR is also devoted to today’s youth by inspiring young people, allocating all leadership opportunities to teenagers and making community service a part of their lives. STLFR is 100% teenage volunteer run, operating mostly on the weekends and evenings when mainstream collection agencies are closed. We are always looking for volunteers; should you be interested in collecting food and bringing it to the organizations we serve, please contact us.
