HELP US FEED THE LESS FORTUNATE IN OUR COMMUNITY
As friends and families all over St. Louis come together to celebrate the holidays, the focus is on family and celebrating the beginning of a new year ahead. However, our family extends beyond our parents, siblings, grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles. Our family includes the whole St. Louis community.
In the St. Louis metro area, nearly 1 out of 6 people face daily food insecurity, meaning that they do not know where they will find their next meal. This includes 135,000 children, enough to fill Busch Stadium three times.
Here at Anthonino’s, we believe that it is important to truly be a part of our community and give back. To achieve this mission, we formed a partnership with St. Louis startup, GiftAMeal. On the GiftAMeal mobile application, each time a user takes a photo at a participating restaurant, a meal is provided locally to someone in need through Operation Food Search.
Operation Food Search is a St. Louis based food bank that distributes food to over 300 local food pantries, ensuring that food gets to those that need it. It also runs nutrition and education programs to increase awareness of affordable, healthy options for the food-insecure.
Hundreds of meals have been provided already due to Anthonino’s customers taking photos on the GiftAMeal app. We encourage you to try out the app next time you dine here, and to tell your friends. With even just one photo, you can make a difference in someone’s life.
