Mobile Food Markets Will Be in Your Community the Week of May 18 in Partnership with St. Louis Area Foodbank

With the introduction of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the number of people needing help with basic needs, including food, has exploded and will, more than likely, continue to grow for the foreseeable future. St. Louis Area Foodbank, which covers 14 counties in Missouri and 12 in Illinois, has ramped up its ability to serve thousands more by bringing in even more partners and volunteers by creating more Mobile Markets throughout its service area to help people who need food. Our goal is to distribute 10 million meals to area children, families, seniors, and other impacted individuals in the bi-state region by the end of June.

The list below shows mobile markets available to anyone who needs a helping hand for the week of May 18, 2020. Unlike a typical food pantry, no ID is needed for the mobile market service. In an effort to maintain social distancing and no contact service to keep you, the volunteers, and workers safe we ask that people who arrive by vehicle open their trunk and then stay in their vehicle until the food is placed in the trunk/cab. If you do not have a vehicle, please check with the organization hosting the mobile market to see if they are accepting walk-ups.

Mobile Markets typically last two to three hours or until supplies run out.
