Not surprisingly, Feed My People is seeing a growing number of people in crisis, needing emergency food. More children are hungry as well, due to school closures. Finally, the grocery stores do not have as much excess food to share, meaning Feed My People needs your help more than ever. Feed My People provides a critical safety net for people in crisis. That time is now.



Feed My People’s South County and High Ridge locations now feature a drive-up service to allow clients, volunteers and staff to maintain proper social distancing while seeing that the food needs of our clients are met. Clients are urged to keep their appointments, but may call to make, reschedule or cancel an appointment if necessary.

(John and Carol DeGuire, the founders of Feed My People).


Feed My People, a Christian inter-denominational organization, strives to show God’s love and compassion to all His people, but particularly to His people in need. Feed My People was founded in 1982 by Carol and John DeGuire to meet the growing needs of the poor in South St. Louis County. “We treat each person who comes to us for help with dignity. Besides their daily needs, we try to give them hope for a brighter future, and let them know that we care and that God cares.” says John.

“Our primary goal was to provide food, but the need and opportunity to do more for our clients expanded our vision to include another office in Fenton MO, opened in 1989. This office moved to High Ridge in 1997 and serves those in need living in southwest St. Louis County and northwest Jefferson County. Serving 16 zip codes from the Mississippi River to Pacific at the Franklin County Line, and from I-44 to the Meramec River and beyond, Feed My People is one of the largest organizations of its kind in the St. Louis area.”
