In light of the recent confirmed case of Coronavirus, we are implementing the following policy. Clients seeking food will be asked to remain in their vehicles and the food will be brought out to them. Clients seeking financial aid are asked to call us at 815-625-0311 rather than stop at the pantry.
policy will be in effect until the concerns about the Coronavirus have passed.
We hope you understand that this is being done in the interest of our clients’
and volunteers’ health and well-being. Our wish is to continue to be here to
serve your needs at this difficult time.
This policy will be in effect
until at least March 31, 2020 and will then be re-evaluated as to whether it
should be continued. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
Newman High School students had a food drive, collecting 660 cans goods. Donating all to the pantry. A variety of can goods of vegetables, soup, fruit and more. Your donation is a blessing to help families. Thank you very much.
We are happy to announce that March completed our first month in the commodities program. Over 170 families benefited from this additional food supply. The value of March’s commodities was an additional $79 per family in groceries above the ‘regular’ items families receive. We are so blessed to be able to help our neighbors with the beneficial program.
