In addition to dispensing emergency and long-term food supplies, we offer many other programs. Programs include: budget, legal and job counseling; assistance in completing federal Earned Income Tax Credit and state Circuit Breaker tax forms; energy assistance; weatherization materials; heaters, fans, smoke detectors, and blankets; personal hygiene products; Spring seeds program; Layettes for newborns: Adopt-A-Family and Giving Tree programs at Christmas; school supplies and new shoe certificates and new underwear for children.

All applicants for assistance must meet stringent eligibility requirements before continued assistance is tendered. We offer our clients a helping hand in their time of need- NOT a way of life.

I have volunteered in the food pantry at Feed My People for more than two years. I have seen the way Feed My People meets the needs of people in Jefferson County by providing healthy food on a regular basis, supporting those looking for jobs, and giving helpful advice as needed. I have also witnessed the support of local churches, schools and the business community who provide items necessary to meet the increased demands of people who are hungry and in need.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

serving as volunteer

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

want to find more sources for food, since this is FMP's greatest need right now.

As a recently retired volunteer, it has been great learning about the work done by Feed My People. This organization has excellent links to the community which helps to provide the resources gathered for the "people" that are the heart of the mission for Feed My People. They are able to provide emergeny help every day, but continue to work with the families to help them achieve long-term stability. Many of the volunteers are in fact ex-clients, putting into practice what they learned at Feed My People, that we all need to care for each other and share what we have.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the ex-clients come back to help others. I also see the continuing contributions made by the St. Louis community in support this very needed work.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

open a new additional office an under-served area.

I have volunteered in the food pantry at Feed My People for a few years since I retired from teaching. The number of people needing food assistance has grown a great deal since I started. We used to finish at around 12:30 PM and now it is around 2:00 Pm although another day was added to the food distribution schedule. It is so heartwarming to get in donations of food from people and organizations. You should hear the cheers from our Tuesday bunch of workers when we get cereal, or how greatful we are to get meat, eggs, milk or produce from the grocery stores. I wish to thank those individuals, organizations, stores, and businesses who donate. I see the look in the peoples eyes and the smiles on their faces when I deliver a basket to them. I wish you could see it too, because it is your caring that has put the smile there.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

realizing that there are so many wonderful people out there who want to help people in need.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give out simple recipes to the clients to help them stretch the food we give them (example rice, bean, or pasta dishes).
