Loaves and Fishes for St. Louis, Inc.

A nonprofit organization

Loaves and Fishes for St. Louis has been serving the Greater St. Louis area for 41 years. We are the longest operating shelter in St. Louis County and are dedicated to leading community efforts with the goal of alleviating homelessness in the Greater St. Louis area. Hunger and homelessness go hand and hand.

Emergency Shelter - Our shelter is a housing focused program that provides immediate shelter assistance to families with minor children who would otherwise be living on the streets, in their cars or other places not meant for human dwelling. This service includes intensive case management and the creation of a housing plan that targets the removal of barriers that are contributing to homelessness, links to mainstream resources, essential life skill classes and housing navigation.

Food Pantry - Our food pantry operates five days a week distributing nutritious food to low income families and individuals. This resource helps subsidize weekly grocery expenses so that money can be shifted to other areas of need like rent and utility expenses. The pantry also acts as a liaison between our program and other community based programs who utilize this food service for their clients.
