Shop Out Hunger Food Drive gives boost to Peace Pantry

Posted on Monday, July 17, 2017 at 1:33 pm

On Saturday, June 24th, Operation Food Search hosted the annual “Shop Out Hunger Food Drive” benefitting food pantries all over the St. Louis & Jefferson County region. Summer can be a tough time for food pantries, when donations are low, and Holiday food resources have run out. Thanks to volunteers from House Springs Cub Pack #553 and Northwest R-1 School District CATS students, over 1,200 food items were collected at Dierbergs on Telegraph.
These items were donated to Peace Pantry in Cedar Hill. A big “thank you” to the kids and families who volunteered their time and chose Peace Pantry to receive the food.
