SLCCU Teams Up With Operation Food Search

Our existence of being more than a credit union to the community is steadfast. We plug into areas in times of great need.

The school year has come to an end.  While some children may be enjoying the best summer ever, others may be wondering where their next meal will come from. For the second year in a row, we are partnering with Operation Food Search’s (OFS) Summer Meals Program.

Last year, our support of OFS brought nearly 1,800 meals to our branch footprint. This time around, we are serving as a presenting sponsor of the organization’s more than 70 mobile meals distribution sites.

The Summer Meals Program launches Friday, June 1 and runs through Saturday, August 11. Thanks to this much-needed initiative, thousands of children 18 and younger will gain access to nutritious food free of charge in our community. Each meal will contain: milk, fruits, vegetables, whole grains and protein.

Since 1981, OFS has empowered families with a range of programs and services proven to reduce food insecurity and increase access to healthy and affordable food.

St. Louis Community Credit Union is thrilled to step up in a major way with OFS to help bring nutritious food to the communities we serve. Text “FOOD” to 877-877 to find a location near you.
