Family Table Initiative
The Family Table Initiative is a collaboration between the Menendez Family of Sunset 44 Bistro and both the Link Market and The St. Louis Food Bank to put nutritious family dinners in the hands of kids and families who don't have access to fresh food in this time of need. In addition, the Family Table
provides jobs for restaurant industry
workers who are currently unemployed.
Since July of 2020, Sunset 44 has served over 4,500 meals to families in need. Each family meal served contains wholesome entrees & sides with homemade whole grain bread.
A generous customer has seeded the program with a pledge to donate 2000 meals. However, the Sunset 44 community stepped up and we were able to leverage this donation and rehire more staff and put them to work getting even more meals to the hungry on more days.
In the Spring of 2020, The Link Market helped us distribute ~400 meals at their new location in the St. Louis Housing Authority Building in the Grand Center Neighborhood on every Monday.
Sunset 44 has also partnered with St. Louis Food Bank in order to reach more communities in need. We are currently partnering with the Food Bank, and they are distributing 400 meals weekly all over the STL Region to 40 different agencies.
To continue this work, we just need your donations.
All donations will be used to create meals for those in need. If you would like to make a contribution more than $500, please contact Matt Menendez at 314.965.6644.
