SLCL Hosts Holiday Food Drive

Press Release

Monday, November 11, 2013 - 12:00p.m.

St. Louis County Library is hosting a holiday food drive at all 20 locations throughout November and December. Customers are asked to donate non-perishable items. Currently the most needed items are canned meats, fish, vegetables, beans, canned chili, soup, ravioli and low-or-no-sugar breakfast cereal. No glass containers or expired items please. All donations will benefit Operation Food Search.

Last year St. Louis County Library was the top donor to Operation Food Search thanks to the generosity of our employees and customers.

Operation Food Search is the largest distributor of free food in the bi-state area.  The organization distributes more than two million pounds of food and household items to 270 community partners, which in turn feed 150,000 poor people each month, nearly one-third of whom are children.
