Operation Food Search is a St. Louis-based non-profit organization dedicated to ending hunger in the greater St. Louis metropolitan area. Established in 1981, we are the largest distributor of free food in the bi-state region. We distribute more than 3 million dollars worth of food and household essentials to 330 community partner agencies, which in turn feeds 200,000 people in need each month – nearly one-third of whom are children. In addition to our emergency food distribution services, we impact thousands of people through our nutrition education services. Our programs are designed to empower families by boosting their skills and confidence to shop for and prepare healthy meals at home.
