Serving St. Louis area residents

The COVID-19 pandemic has had widespread effects across communities in the U.S., including our own. The students and faculty at the Washington University School of Medicine are committed to ensuring that St. Louis residents that are quarantined to prevent spread of disease can still have reliable access to food and other necessities without needing to break quarantine. Our student initiative will collaborate with STL Food Angels and other community institutions to provide food to our most high-risk populations during the COVID-19 outbreak. With the help of community organizations, the cost of groceries must be paid by the customer, but the delivery fee is entirely optional.

If you meet all eligibility criteria, please use this link starting on Sunday, March 22, 2020.
