ST. LOUIS – August 30, 2019 – The St. Louis Area Foodbank and Feast Magazine are partnering with some of the area’s top restaurants to help feed the hungry by dining out during the month of September.
Participating restaurants have created a special dish or designated an item on their menu that will benefit the Foodbank each time it is sold. Diners can participate by purchasing the designated dishes and spreading the word about this fun and delicious way to give back!
With just one dollar, the Foodbank can provide four meals for hungry people in the bi-state region. By participating in STL Chefs Against Hunger, local residents are supporting children, families and seniors in need of food assistance.
Participating restaurants include:
· Bar Les Freres
· Billie l Jean
· Blueberry Hill
· Cinder House
· Cleveland Heath
· Dewey’s Pizza (all St. Louis area locations)
· Eleven Eleven Mississippi
· Evangeline’s Bistro & Music House
· Green Bean Delivery

· Pickleman’s Gourmet Café (all locations)

· The Original Crusoe’s
· The Shaved Duck
· The Tavern

STL Chefs Against Hunger is an integral part of the Foodbank’s Hungry for Change Hunger Action Month efforts during the month of September. The organization encourages residents throughout the bi-state region to visit their favorite restaurants and try a few new ones too.
There is also a social component. Diners are asked to take a selfie with their STL Chefs Against Hunger dish, tag @STLFoodbank and @FeastMag and post it on social media with the hashtag #ChefsAgainstHungerSTL. One person will be selected at random to win a $50 gift card.
