As a joint ministry of First Lutheran and the First United Methodist Church, our mission is to
help provide nutritious food to those hungry and in need. Our hours are 10am-noon on the first
Tuesday and third Saturday of each month. If emergency food is needed at another time, please
contact Jean Royalty at 815-522-4452 or 815-885-4035, or Wanda Karolus at 522-3853.

We have an ongoing need for paper products, brown paper bags, and soap. By ordering through
the Northern Illinois Food Bank, we are able to purchase much food at a low cost, and welcome
donations of money or food at any time.

We welcome volunteers to help with delivery days, setting up, and distribution. Jill Vodden is in charge
of organizing volunteers. If you would like to help, please contact her at (815) 393-4541 or
with your offers of assistance. Sign up sheets are also located on the 
freezer door in the food pantry.

Thanks to all who have donated your time, money, and products to the food pantry. 
It is really appreciated by those who are in need.

Volunteers are needed to assist with both setting up and distributing food on Tuesdays. Set-up times are from 9:30-11:00 a.m. each Tuesday, except for the last Tuesday which is 12:30-2:00 p.m.
