TEAM provides food and non-food items to needy families in the Florissant/Hazelwood areas on a once a month basis. The amount of items provided is simply a supplement to the client family requirements each month. Clients are provided with basic items such as meat, canned vegetables and fruits, pasta, bakery, produce and other staples. Household supplies, personal care items and some basic infant supplies are distributed when available. Government commodity products are provided for eligible residents in St. Louis County.
Clients must call to make appointments with TEAM, be certified and provide proof of residency each month. Volunteers fill grocery baskets in advance of the appointment time with items based on family size. Inventories vary each day depending on donations, collections and local purchases required to fulfill basic needs.
TEAM receives support from the Foodbank, “Operation Food Search,” our member churches, area businesses, schools, fire stations, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, letter carriers, and other local organizations and individuals in providing for our needy clients.
