Crider Health Center and the St. Louis Area Foodbank  partnered in an on-going effort to provide food to under-served Warren County residents that participate in Crider’s services and programs. 



On Wednesday, November 21, 2012, a mobile distribution unit arrived at Crider Health Center, 19515 Brune Parkway in Warrenton, shortly before 9 a.m.  Upon arrival, nine volunteers began the process of setting up the food distribution area and prepared to distribute groceries to each individual or family who presented a food certificate.

The staff at Crider Health Center distributed 80 food certificates to individuals and families who participate in the wide array of services provided at Crider Health Center.  Each person who received a certificate received several bags of groceries including fresh produce, bread, frozen pizza, meat and an assortment of other items, including yogurt and other dairy products.

“Crider Health Center is excited to be partnering with the St. Louis Area Foodbank,” said Sarah Javier, vice president of development and marketing at Crider Health Center.  “Many of our clients who are receiving food through this partnership have stated that they would be unable to provide a holiday meal for their families without our help.  Seeing first-hand the difference that this small gesture made to the people we serve was not only heart-warming but really brought the true meaning behind the holidays into perspective.”

Together, Crider Health Center and the St. Louis Area Foodbank are not only fighting hunger, they are providing hope for individuals and families living in Warren County.

“The St. Louis Area Foodbank has been helping feed hungry families in Warren County for years.  We are excited to work with Crider Health Center on mobile distributions in this area.  While our most recent distribution took place just before Thanksgiving, everyone at the Foodbank recognizes that hunger affects families all year long, not just during the holiday season,” said Frank Finnegan, president and CEO at the St. Louis Area Foodbank.  “Crider has partnered with us to ensure that the families they serve receive access to quality, health-conscience food throughout the year.  We are looking forward to working together well into the future to fight hunger in Warren County.”
