The goal of Feed the Knowledge is to serve children of St. Louis facing food insecurity by providing kid-friendly, easy-to-prepare bags of food which are discretely distributed to nearly 200 children each week.
The Crestwood-Sunset Hills Rotary Club established the Feed the Knowledge program in 2013 after recognizing the need to supply weekend meals for children in the Lindbergh and Mehlville school districts. Through relationships with district school counselors, students needing assistance are identified. During the first year, Rotarians provided weekend meal bags to 25 students at 2 elementary schools. Since then the program has grown to serve nearly 200 students at over 15 schools during the 2020-21 school year and continues to grow!
The goal of Feed the Knowledge is to provide nutritious, kid-friendly, easy to prepare weekend food bags which are discreetly distributed to the students each Friday prior to school dismissal. A critical component to maintaining a healthy childhood is nutrition. Proper nutrition is important to establishing and maintaining a good foundation for a child's physical and mental health, academic achievement and productivity.
