Thank you so much for supporting St. Louis World Food Day. We are happy to let you know that in 2012, we not only met our packaging goal of 200,000 meals, we blew right past it! A grand total of 249,912 meals were assembled thanks to the hard work of over 1500 volunteers of all ages, from all walks of life, who came together to work side-by-side at this local event with a huge international impact.
With your help we did it in 2012! We’ll be back on Friday, October 11, 2013 to do it again and we now have 501(c)(3) status! Your gifts are tax deductible! Click here to DONATE
Throughout the day, corporate CEOs and executives packaged next to 2nd graders, teachers worked alongside students, and people who were strangers at the beginning of the day left the event as friends. Chris Pronger, Aeneas Williams, and Louie from the St. Louis Blues, along with Doug Pitt (yes he is Brad Pitt’s brother!) inspired the crowd. Later that evening, students from 21 area high schools attended the high school rally and, while singing their hearts out to some very loud music, worked tirelessly on to package more than 70,000 meals (they’d have kept going, but we ran out of vitamin packets!) All in all, it was an exciting, memorable, and meaningful day.
