Food Pantryproviding food for those who need it
The Food Pantry (located in Urbana) is open to anyone in the community during public distribution hours. On Wednesday from 10am-12pm, you can simply come to us to receive a large bag of food, including some items you can choose yourself based on your family's needs. You will be met by our compassionate Food Pantry team members upon arrival and given a number. During your wait for a turn, you can opt to receive prayer from our trained ministry volunteers or you can just wait in our waiting area. Once your number is called, you will be met by another volunteer who will lead you through the choice items and help put your bag of food together. The Food Pantry is also open from 5-6pm each Wednesday for express distribution. You will still be able to receive a bag of food and choice items.
It is important to note you can only visit the Food Pantry once a month. You must meet government qualifications to receive commodities; these qualifications are posted at the Food Pantry or by clicking here.
