Feed My People St Louis - A Christian Food Pantry, Help Center

Feed My People Gives Hope

When you go through deep waters I will be with you. Isaiah 43:2

Feed My People's mission is to show God's love and compassion to all His people, but particularly to His people in need. We are a Christian Food Pantry and Thrift Store located in both South County, St. Louis and High Ridge Missouri.


Everyone needs help from time to time. No matter who you are, what background you come from - or your age, tough times can come. Feed My People, is here to help you weather the storm.


The situations are many. Whether it is short term or you need help getting food in the long haul, count on Feed My People for so many situations.


  • The single parents trying to afford food with expensive daycare.
  • The recent or long-term unemployed trying to keep their homes and car payments made, while still needing food.
  • Those who live on a fixed-income forced to choose between medicine and food.
  • The homeless who need food to carry with them.
  • People in crisis who need help.


Feed My People can help. We know the challenges of juggling expenses when you face hardships. Let Feed My People help you feed yourself and your loved ones, when times are rough, as we have helped people since 1982.

Deguire Family Loss


Michael J. Ackerman, IT Coordinator, passed unexpectedly on Thursday, September 16, 2021. He was a single dad to Sophia, 11, and Phoebe, 22, a student at Truman University. In addition he has three grown daughters who each achieved professional success. Mike was a critical part of Feed My People, moving the organization into the computer age and keeping pace with changes. He allowed our organization to have robust computing power with computers he carefully rebuilt and updated.


Michael was born on 7/12/1959 and passed away on 9/16/2021. He began working in construction when he was a very young man and later became knowledgeable about computers. He will be remembered for his willingness to drop everything even on days off to assist staff and volunteers when they had any computing issue. Executive Director Karen Lanter used to say that Mike “was worth his weight in gold.” His willingness to solve whatever computer issue using his extensive knowledge saved our organization thousands and thousands of dollars. He was Feed My People’s Founders John and Carol Deguire’s son-in-law.


His passion was his children. He was the sole parent to Sophia and Phoebe. Because Mike worked part time, he was not part of Feed My People’s life insurance or any other benefits. He leaves his family unexpectedly and with few resources. John and Carol Deguire are now raising their granddaughter Sophie.


Feed My People is collecting donations for John and Carol Deguire to help them provide for Sophia and Phoebe. If you would like to help, please mail or drop off your check at either Feed My People. ALL CHECKS SHOULD BE PAYABLE TO "THE DEGUIRES".




“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away” – Romans 8:1

Tracy Family Foundation

Feed My People is grateful to the Tracy Family Foundation for their $10,000 gift to transform Feed My People’s Food Pantry in South County into a Client Choice pantry. We recently announced plans to open a grocery store-style food pantry that will allow customers to select their own products to support personal preferences, dietary restrictions and nutritional needs.


“When our shoppers get to make their own food decisions rather than receiving a pre-selected box of food, nutritional status improves and waste is dramatically reduced,” Karen Lanter, executive director, said in a press release. “We’ll be able to see what healthy food choices are most popular and tailor our food procurement to match those nutritious preferences. It’s a way to show dignity and respect to others by honoring their personal food choices and needs.”
