You are invited to a Welcome Neighbor STL drive-thru supper club with proceeds being raised to support unhoused individuals in St. Louis. Normally we would invite you to to break bread during one of our traditional Supper Clubs, however we are currently limited in our gatherings. With the overwhelming success of our drive-thru supper club on International Refugee day, we decided to continue events where we deliver delicious to-go boxes of authentic cuisine directly to your car.
These meals present an opportunity for immigrant families to share knowledge and skills unique to them. It is also an opportunity for us to get a glimpse into their culture. These fundraising efforts can be life-changing events as we reach out to our larger community in need to and to help provide nourishing food during this time of covid.
When you attend a Welcome Neighbor STL drive-thru supper club, your meal will be prepared by immigrant neighbors who will share their culture and cooking skills by providing a plate full of traditional food from their country of origin.

American Falafel opened in May of 2020 in the University City Loop during the middle of the pandemic. Their selection of Jordanian cuisine has been an immediate hit in the Delmar Loop and customers can’t get enough of their falafel sandwiches (you MUST stop by to try it sometime!)
This collaboration between American Falafel and Welcome Neighbor STL to continue sharing foods from all over the world while helping the most vulnerable in communities was a natural fit as our goals are aligned to helping those in need.
A HUGE thank you to our new friends at American Falafel for partnering with our organization to continue to give back.
First and foremost at American Falafel we serve our food from the heart so a partnership with Welcome Neighbor STL fits perfectly for us. This program supports an amazing cause where people from the Lou can showcase their generosity by donating meals to the most needy individuals and help people living right here in our own community.
– Mohammed Qadadeh, Founder of American Falafel
