STEP responds to people in crisis who have no where to turn for help with basic needs such as food, clothing, transportation and housing.
Though it may be hard to imagine, hunger does happens here. 1 in 10 households in St. Louis Park don't have enough food.
Hunger is real and it is hurting our neighbors.
The St. Louis Park Emergency Program is working toward a hunger free community.
"America is the richest country in the world. And yet tonight, thousands of your neighbors will go to bed hungry. It may be your child's schoolmate who is undernourished and has difficulty learning on an empty stomach. Or it could be a co-worker, a working mother whose low-wage job doesn't make ends meet. Perhaps it's an elderly neighbor who has to make a decision whether to delay filling a prescription or buying groceries. The faces of hunger are as broad as the faces of America."
