Operation Food Search accepts all types of food donations in all quantities. While we cannot accept food that is prepared at home, we do accept leftover food from catered events prepared in a commercial kitchen. Proper temperature of food is required (refrigerated or frozen).
Non-perishable donations can be dropped off 24 hours a day in the white donation bin outside our warehouse at 1644 Lotsie Blvd. in St. Louis, MO.
Perishable donations can be dropped off at our warehouse Monday through Friday from 12 to 4 p.m.

Food drives bring in quality “meal-maker” non-perishable food items that are in extremely high demand. They are great team-building opportunities that make a huge impact on hunger in the St. Louis region.
Hosting A Drive
Please no glass containers (due to breakage), perishable or homemade food.
Fund drives can be used instead of or in addition to food drives. Because we are able to leverage our partnerships with food suppliers, every dollar donated to help meet the immediate need for food provides $10 in food and services.
We can quickly set up a virtual food drive page for you that is completely secure, customized and easy to use. We can also track donations for you and report ongoing donation totals to motivate participation.
We make giving easy! Workplace giving campaigns and fundraisers are a great bang for your buck, saving you time and making even more of an impact in our community. Contact us to acquire a unique, secure online donation link created especially for you or schedule food drive logistics.
