Crisis Food Center  was started in 1977 by our first Director, Frances Jackson, with the support of several area pastors. We initially operated out of the basement of the Elm St. Presbyterian Church.  In 1981, we moved to our current site, the former parsonage of the 1st Methodist Church.  Since that time, we have grown into a full-service food pantry of 501(c) (3) status.  We purchased our building in 2005 from the church, and continue to  operate  with the help of a small staff, many dedicated volunteers, and the tremendous support of our donors.  During 2014, we provided nearly 10,000 food orders to the individuals and families who came to us for help.  Additionally, we provide Summertime Hunger Helpers - kid-friendly foods for families with school-aged children - to help supply a nutritious breakfast and lunch while school is out for the summer.   During summer 2014, we provided 651 Summertime Hunger Helper boxes to those families.   We are also a proud member of the United Way of Greater St. Louis.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call, or e-mail us at  [email protected]
