ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - The St. Louis Area Foodbank is seeing a significant increase in need but food and financial donations are down.

“We’re seeing anywhere from 15-20 percent decline in food donations,” said Meredith Knopp, president and CEO of the St. Louis Area Foodbank.

Knopp also said their revenue is down and that they are still seeing a heightened need from where it was pre-COVID.

“We don’t have the support to do what we need to do, so we’re having to make some tough decisions as a food bank,” she said.

The foodbank told News 4 that more and more working families are having trouble affording basic necessities and making ends meet.
