Share the Love Fundraising Campaign

During this year's Share the Love fundraising campaign to help people who go hungry each day in our community. The campaign, a program of our St. Louis Attorneys Against Hunger initiative, runs October 1—December 31, 2019.

Each day, hundreds of thousands of people in the metropolitan St. Louis region go hungry. According to a report from Feeding America, more than 380,000 individuals are considered food insecure (lacking access to enough food and nutritionally adequate food) in the St. Louis metropolitan region.

Share the Love is one way that BAMSL members can make a difference in our community and help us reduce the number of people who go hungry each day. All proceeds will benefit three hunger-related charities in our region: Meals on Wheels of Greater St. Louis, Operation Food Search, and St. Patrick Center.

 


Operation Food Search Emergency Hunger Hotline

The Hunger Hotline is an emergency, 24/7 service to provide those in need with referral information for agencies in their neighborhoods. Callers are supplied with agency names and telephone numbers.
