ABOUT AGAPE

AGAPE is a non-profit 501(c)3 that serves more than 3,000 families in Warrenton County, Missouri with a variety of programs. Our primary service is providing food to individuals and families who are facing food insecurity. Many of our clients do not know where their next meal is coming from and face the harsh reality of not being able to provide enough food for their children. Secondary programs include emergency financial aid, diapers, work readiness, school supplies, Thanksgiving meals, Christmas assistance and a number of other services to help support income-eligible residents. The agency is funded through a combination of private donations, public grants and proceeds from AGAPE Thrift. AGAPE Thrift is supported by the community with a wide variety of donations and is open to the public. Everyone is welcome to come by and shop our thrift store!

 

AGAPE was founded in July 1996 by a group of concerned people representing area churches, businesses and community groups. The founders wanted to create a central place where Warren County residents living at or below the poverty level could come for aid. Over the last several years we have fed more than 45,000 people with nearly 500,000 pounds of food and disbursed more than $225,000 in direct aid. Currently, we are providing food and clothing to about 1,200 people every month. Approximately 15% of our clients are elderly and 50% are children.
