Foodbank brings mobile markets to St. Charles

The region is slowly reopening but the number of people needing help with basic needs, including food is not diminishing.

The St. Louis Area Foodbank, which covers 14 counties in Missouri and 12 in Illinois, is serving thousands more by bringing in more partners and volunteers with Mobile Markets throughout its service area to help people who need food. The Foodbank’s 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.

Mobile Markets will take place in St. Charles County at 2 p.m. on June 3 and June 10 at Francis Howell School District, Burbes Service Center, 4606 Central School Road.

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

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.
