St. Louis St. Louis (KSDK) - The St. Louis Food Bank is being honored for its environmentally-friendly ways.

The non-profit has upgraded its lighting, improved freezer maintenance and added new road navigation software for its trucks.

This three pronged approach is expected to save the food bank thousands every year. The extra money will be used to buy more food.

The pantry was given the Environmental Stewardship Award for its efforts.

The state, City of St. Louis and St. Louis County all issued proclamations praising the effort.
