About Operation Food Search
Operation Food Search was established in 1981 to address the growing problem of hunger and has since become the largest distributor of free food in the bi-state area. The organization distributes more than two million pounds of food and household items to 250 community partner agencies which in turn feed 150,000 poor people each month, nearly one-third of whom are children. For every dollar donated by individuals, corporations, foundations and organizations, OFS provides $22 worth of food and nutrition services to support the hungry.
