Help us feed our community! It's easy to donate via the link below.
This year, our community needs our help more than ever. Let's show St. Louis yet another way the dental profession gives back to their community. All proceeds go directly to the St. Louis Area Foodbank.
From the St. Louis Area Foodbank: From March 16, our distribution efforts have increased by 48% compared to 2019. Through the end of the year, we anticipate providing 5 million meals each month. This is an increase from 3.1 million meals each month in 2019.
Before the pandemic, there were 368,040 individuals, families and seniors in eastern Missouri and southern Illinois facing hunger. Unfortunately, and surprisingly, a new study from Feeding America projects the number of food-insecure neighbors in the bi-state region to grow by 43%, including a 65% growth for children and teens. That means approximately 527,280 people may face hunger in 2020, including 159,220 children.
All who donate will be recognized in The Dental Arch
and on Facebook.
