ST. LOUIS, Mo., (January 14, 2020) – Meridian Waste Missouri, LLC, a subsidiary of Meridian Waste, an integrated, non-hazardous solid waste services company, is asking for the community’s help to feed those in need by stocking the shelves of The Lake Food Pantry serving Lincoln, St. Charles, and Warren Counties.

40 Yards to Feed the Community is a Meridian Waste initiative to help fortify the reserves of local food pantries to feed individuals and families. The Company teams up with local food pantries in the communities in which they serve to help their neighbors in need.

The Lake Food Pantry is in need of non-perishable foods and is collecting through donations Saturday, January 30, 2021. Items needed include, but are not limited to:

Canned Vegetables, Canned Fruit, Canned Meats, Rice, Beans, Boxed Mac & Cheese, Cereal, Oatmeal, Grits, Peanut Butter, Jelly, Hamburger Helper, Instant Potatoes, Soups, Chili, Rice/Noodle Dinner Mixes, Pasta Noodles, Pasta Sauce, Canned Pasta, Pancake Mix, Cake Mix, Icing, Boxed Pudding, Cookies, Graham Crackers.

According to, due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), food insecurity, which is a household’s inability to provide enough food for every person to live an active, healthy life, will continue to rise across the nation.  

“We live and work here, and we’re dedicated to helping our neighbors in need,” said Meridian Waste Area President Bob Mathis. “There is a need to stock the food pantry and feed our community. We want to increase awareness and opportunities to give back to The Lake Food Pantry. Our goal of filling a 40-yard container is lofty, but we’re reaching high to help out. We believe in the generosity of individuals and businesses for plentiful donations.”
