Feed the Masses Food Drive - Donate to Win a Pool Party!

Get ready for a month of giving and friendly competition as our Parks and Recreation Department joins the 4th Annual "Feed The Masses" food drive contest from November 1 to November 30. Over 20 neighboring cities are participating to collect food items for local food banks.

You can make a difference by donating canned goods and non perishable items at the Maryland Heights Community Center throughout November. No contribution is too small, and your generosity can have a significant impact on our community. All donations go directly to the St. Louis Area Foodbank, helping local families facing food insecurity. 

Items needed:
  • Canned meat or fish
  • Mac and cheese
  • Instant mashed potatoes
  • Canned fruits and veggies
  • Peanut butter or jelly
  • Canned chili or soup
  • Canned beans
  • Rice and pasta products
  • Cereal and oatmeal
  • Powdered milk
  • Crackers
  • Applesauce
  • Personal care items
  • Feminine or baby care items
Fill the Cop Car - Donate to Win a Pool Party!
Wednesday, November 29
4:00 - 6:00 p.m. 
Join us as we make our final push to be the city that collects the most food for the Feed the Masses Food Drive! Come out to the Community Center as Mayor Moeller, the Maryland Heights Parks and Recreation Department, and the Police Department attempt to fill a cop car with non-perishable food donations! This is also the last chance to be entered into the raffle to win a free pool party, so bring your donations!

For every 10 items you donate, you will receive a raffle ticket for the chance to win a free pool party for 20 friends! You get to choose the location! It can be held at the Indoor Aquatic Center at the Community Center, or at Aquaport during the 2024 season! In order to be entered, you must show the front desk your 10 items and you will receive a slip of paper to fill out. The winner will be announced by Mayor Moeller at 6:00 p.m. after the cop car has been filled.

Donations will still be accepted before and after this event at the Community Center through Thursday, November 30.
