YWCA Food Drive - Packers & Distributors
In St. Louis City alone, over 25% of the population is food uncertain, and over 12% of that is food uncertain with hunger.
National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is November 10-18. Many of our clients, across all our service areas, lack access to adequate food. It is hard to be empowered when you and your children are hungry, so YWCA is hosting a Food Drive for our clients and invite you to join!
Volunteer - We are looking for volunteers for Friday, November 16th. We’re looking for groups to help us with sorting and packaging the donated items from 9:30am-4pm, then helping with client pick-up that night from 4-7pm. Lunch will be provided, and the day can be broken into as many shifts as needed.
Food Donor - Items can be dropped off Tuesday, November 13th through Thursday, November 15th from 8am-7pm. Donations can be dropped off at our Metro location either in person or through grocery delivery. We will also accept items mailed through Amazon's Pantry option. YWCA's Metro address is 3820 West Pine Blvd. (corner of Vandeventer & Laclede, on Laclede across from Jimmy John's). Requested items: cereal, crackers, peanut butter, jelly, chili, soup (low sodium), microwave popcorn, pasta, pasta sauce, sugar-free drinks, sugar-free snacks, canned meat (tuna, chicken, etc.), toilet paper, paper towels, can opener, or grocery store gift cards. Contact Nicole Huges at email@example.com or 314-531-1115 with any donation questions.
