About Food Outreach:
Food Outreach is the only St. Louis-area organization providing nutritional support to community members who are battling with HIV/AIDS or cancer in addition to food insecurity. The funds raised at A Tasteful Affair will provide the resources to help Food Outreach continue to prepare wholesome, made-from-scratch, nourishing food and groceries to help our clients who are indigent; who find preparing meals difficult or impossible and who are in the workplace and can extend their employment by removing extraneous demands on their energy.
