Little Angels Foundation exists to combat food insecurity for vulnerable populations in the St. Louis region. It does this using volunteers who are diverse in all ways: ages, socio-economic backgrounds, races, ethnicities and religions.
The St. Louis Mosaic Project has seen this assistance in helping our vulnerable newcomer families from Afghanistan. And, we know the group stands ready to help as other newcomers in need arrive to the St. Louis region from troubled places around the globe.
We have huge respect and appreciation for the organization that Riz Khan leads and the way the organization mobilizes the resources of many to serve those most in need.

Little Angels Foundation addresses a critical need in our community: providing food, personal care items, and relief to vulnerable populations. Operation Food Search (OFS) is grateful for the partnership with Little Angels Foundation.
In 2021-2022, Riz and his team of volunteers provided healthy meals and other food resources to OFS, to distribute through our network of community food partner agencies.
Not only do they nourish community members, they also nourished the OFS team by preparing a delicious lunch for our quarterly staff meeting. It’s evident the team prepares meals with skill, care, and love.

Little Angels Foundation is doing the hard work to help provide hope to the food insecure in the St. Louis region. They are going above and beyond to help make sure the transition for not only people from St. Louis, but for the Refugees from around the world who come to call St. Louis home, is one where they don’t have to worry about food insecurity and groceries and other personal care needs.
I am truly grateful to know Riz and to know the journey he took to get to this place in his mission and Little Angels Foundation is truly a blessing to our community!

I want to first thank Riz and his amazing team for running such a wonderful organization. During a time when food donations were low, Little Angels Foundation stepped right in to support PPCS Soulard Shelter with a weekly meals, fruits and supplies. Peter and Paul Soulard shelter serves 60-70 homeless men nightly and we are in need of providing an evening meal. Little Angels Foundation saw our need and has been a huge support since our relationship started during pandemic. The staff and clients are forever grateful for their support. The food is always fresh, delicious healthy.
Being that food cost are on the rise and the impact that COVID has had on social service organizations, knowing that the sacrifice and support is still present makes serving a whole lot easier when organization like Little Angels Foundation comes as a huge support to the homeless population.
Thanks for your commitment to serve the ones in dire need.
