The Francis Howell School District launched a Mobile Market during the 2017-18 school year in an effort to help feed local families in need. The Market was established in partnership with Sodexo USA and the St. Louis Area Foodbank. Through this partnership, the St. Louis Area Food Bank provides FHSD families with fresh and nutritious food, such as dairy, meat, and fresh produce.

“The Mobile Market is an opportunity for the District to provide an essential service that our low-income students and their families need,” said Matt Deichmann, FHSD chief communications and community relations officer. “People think of St. Charles County as an affluent area, but there are still families in our community that need help. Better nutrition for our students also means better results in school.”


Last year the Mobile Market served approximately 40 families each month. FHSD hopes to continue to grow the program to help more families in need. The Market is open one day a month from 2:30 - 4:30 PM, to provide donated food for those who need it. Upcoming dates for the Mobile Market are:
