Along with household items and food kits, the St. Louis Area Foodbank will hand out COVID-19 tests at its upcoming distribution next week.

Those in need can visit the food bank's “Food on the Move” truck at the Rock Road Metro Station, 7001 St. Charles Rock Road, in order to receive the rapid antigen testing kits, food and household items on January 18 from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Masks are required if you plan on visiting, and if you are feeling sick, the organization asks that you send someone else to pick up the test for you.

St. Louis is experiencing a record-breaking amount of hospitalizations and case numbers while tests have been hard to come by – especially as some sites come under fire for their trustworthiness. The food bank said in a press release they are “pleased to give these tests to the community especially at a time where they are in great need and short supply.”

Tests are limited to four kits per household and are only available on a first-come, first-served basis.
