ST LOUIS, MO, UNITED STATES, July 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- When times are tough, knowing that there is a passionate and dedicated organization out there willing to help working families survive and ensure that children have the support that they need to grow up and succeed makes all the difference in a parent’s state of mind.

Through their nutrition initiative, staff, volunteers and partners in St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles counties, Poplar Bluff, Mountain View, Kansas City, Pevely, MO are serving up food for those in need and bringing them the love and support they deserve through a variety of core initiatives and programs.

Forks of Flavor is a state-wide initiative that families in need can visit one of 27 food distribution sites to receive a box of fresh and frozen food, free of charge. We do not require income verification or any proof of residency. Like our Facebook page for an updated list of locations, days and times.

Participants have the option to travel to food distribution sites spread throughout the city to pick up boxes of fresh and frozen food, free of charge - and no questions asked.
