Western Egyptian Economic Opportunity Council, Inc.

Food Pantries

Western Egyptian partners with St. Louis Area Foodbank, Midwest Food Bank, local businesses and community members to meet the nutrition needs of our community. Families with a combined gross income below 185% of the federal poverty level are eligible to receive food from their local food pantry once per month (see chart below). Perry County residents may also receive additional food from the monthly Mobile Market.

Please see the appropriate County to the left for food pantry days/times.
