Note to potential volunteers: Evening and weekend volunteer opportunities are not common. Individuals will not be able to volunteer during these times, but we will occasionally schedule groups to volunteer. Feel free to contact Katie Schneider, Volunteer Manager at (314) 726-5355 x21 or katie.schneider@OperationFoodSearch.org and we’ll help you discover the joys of volunteering to eliminate hunger.

For every dollar donated by individuals, corporations, foundations, and organizations,
98 cents is devoted to programs and services.
