On Saturday, March 14th, Food 4 Kids St. Tammany activated its COVID-19 Community Outreach and Response Initiative following Governor John Bel Edwards’s March 13th proclamation to close all public schools in the state of Louisiana.

F4KST began to immediately work with the St. Tammany Parish Public School System to coordinate feeding efforts at its Grab-N-Go pick up sites.

On March 20th, F4KST served approximately 400 families throughout St. Tammany Parish at its first food distribution activation.

Since then, F4KST has distributed hundreds more bags of food to families in need and as of April 18th, has begun its food distribution from Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Slidell.

Dates and times for food distributions will continue to be posted on Facebook and in the Events section of the F4KST website.

Anyone interested in volunteering can send an email to and a member of the team will connect with you to coordinate your service opportunity.
