Our Work

Schools Served

Little Bit partners with schools where 90 to 100% of students qualify for the free and reduced lunch program, meaning they are living at or below the federal poverty line. Since, unfortunately, many schools in St. Louis fall within this category, we first consider schools with the greatest need and the fewest resources. Schools also need to be able to provide designated space for a Little Bit boutique and a dedicated school liaison who will work directly with Little Bit volunteers and staff.

It’s important that school leadership aligns with the mission and is committed to its success. In turn, schools have Little Bit’s commitment that we will be there for as long as needed, in good times and bad. Our oldest school partnership dates back to 2002.
