The holidays may be over but hunger is still an epidemic among our neighbors, friends, and family struggling to buy necessities such as heat and warm winter clothes. In the spirit and memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., St. Louis Public Library is proud to launch a food drive in his honor.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately. If you have a question about the activity itself, please contact the organization administrator listed below.

Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., February 4, 1968

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was passionate about ending poverty by first eliminating hunger. You can be a part of Dr. King’s legacy when you help feed the hungry by donating a canned or boxed food item at any St. Louis Public Library branch during the entire month of January. Your generous donation will benefit the St. Louis community by providing food to families in need, elderly citizens having to choose between buying medicine and food, and meals to the underprivileged who depend on donations to eat every day.

The St. Louis Area Foodbank will have barrels located at each branch to accept donations. If you are interested in donating, or concerned as to what is needed, there will be a sign at each location with a list of accepted items. Please, no items in glass containers. Donations may only be accepted during posted operating hours at each location.
