Mayors for Meals Flyer
The City of Ballwin is participating in the multi-county "Mayors for Meals" campaign, in partnership with the St. Louis Area Foodbank. The Mayors for Meals campaign is a way for local communities to support those facing food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic. On Saturday, May 9 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., our Police Department (300 Park Drive) will serve as a no-contact, drop-off location. A collection bin will be placed in the lobby.
According to the most recent numbers from Feeding America (https://map.feedingamerica.org/), prior to COVID-19 hitting the area, there were more than 400,000 food insecure people living in the St. Louis Area Foodbank’s 26-county service territory. More than 137,000 of those individuals live in St. Louis County. That’s almost 14% of the county’s population. Our local food pantries are currently faced with depleting inventories during this time and your donation goes a long way towards helping communities rebuild during this time of need!
