Feed My People Food Drive 2011

Many thanks to Mary Prost, who headed up the Feed My People Food Drive this year, and also to the many volunteers who drove or went door-to-door to distribute bags or pick them up, and sort & pack the food!  We increased the number of bags we put out this year, so the returns were even bigger... we collected over 7,000 lbs of food!


Client Picnic 2011

A very special thanks to everyone who helped make our client picnic a real success, and especially to SERATOMA, who sent a ton of volunteers and also covered the cost of the food.  We'd also like to thank the management team at Parkside Apartments, who helped us promote this event to all the residents.  A great time was had by all!

Special thanks to our sponsors, the Over the Road Camping Club, and our host, Fenton Wal-Mart!  Easter baskets for kids, food supplies, personal care items, and cash were donated by people from the community.  A special thanks to Alan and Christine from the club for all their hard work and for giving away chances to win a lot of camping equipment to help us get donations!  A fun day was had by all!


Trivia Night 2011

The 2011 Feed My People Trivia Night was a great success. Thanks in part to the showmanship and pizzazz of our good friend, KMOX legendary radio personality Johnny Rabbit. Ten fantastic rounds of trivia, good friends, a wonderful silent auction and a great prize for canned good donations. This year's highlight in addition to Johnny Rabbit was the addition of premium tables with designated bar runners, which proved a big hit!


Feed My People 30th Anniversary Fashion Show & Luncheon

The 30th Anniversary of Feed My People was celebrated in a big way on Saturday April 28th with a fashion show and luncheon. The event kicked off with an energetic hip hop dance routine performed by Gift Dance Crew. Following brief welcoming remarks by Feed My People's Roy Wunsch, a very special video tribute to the past 30 years was shown. This was followed by a high class fashion show featuring fashions from the Thrift Stores of Feed My People and featuring a wide range of models that included FMP volunteers and clients as well as professional models from Barbazon School of Modeling. A patriotic solute to the troops featuring red, white and blue clothing was enhanced by the surprise appearance of American Legion Post #162 color guard. A standing ovation kicked off this sentimental portion of the show. The finale included a bride in a wedding gown and the tossing of the bouquet into the audience. Ed Kovarik, President of the Feed My People Board of Directors presented FMP Founders John & Carol DeGuire with a proclamation from the Governor of Missouri and a citation naming April 28th 2012 Feed My People Day in St. Louis County. In addition to a great lunch everybody who attended had a great time.
