Food 4 Vets Program - June 19th

The Kaufman Fund is proud to announce our second Food 4 Vets program to support food insecure Veterans in our community on Saturday, June 19 from 9a - Noon at the Arnold Food Pantry (2024 Key West Dr., 63010). 

We're excited to partner with the Arnold Food Pantry - one of the largest in the region.

Our June event is set up to feed 90 Veteran families with each who signs up receiving approximately 10 days of food for their household. Once the Veteran is in the system they will be able to get food on a monthly basis.

Veterans who need food assistance can register for our June 19th event by clicking here.  This event is reserved specficially for Veterans and their families.

If for any reason the Veteran is not capable of filling out the form, they may call Ken Weintraub MSW at 314-680- 2905 or email ken@thekaufmanfund.org to get the proper assistance.

 

Humana is proud to help our local Veterans by sponsoring this Food 4 Vets Event.

 Use the Republic Totes through the end of the month. 

 

One the last pick up of the month, Republic will pick up your trash, your trash tote and recycle tote.

 If you have a black recycle tote that says “St. Louis County Recycling” they will not pick this up and it is yours to keep.
