PECATONICA COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY

Our Mission Statement:

A partnership among local Christian Churches, the Pecatonica Community Food Pantry is dedicated to providing for the needs of hungry people by organizing volunteers, collecting and distributing food, and collaborating with other human service agencies.

 

PECATONICA COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY AT A GLANCE

We are an organization with volunteers from the community whose mission is to provide food for those in need in the area. We are supported by private and public grants as available, as well as generous donations through food drives and individual food and monetary donations throughout the year.

Helping The Community

At Pecatonica Community Food Pantry, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing food insecurity. Donations may be dropped off at the Pecatonica United Methodist Church entryway and the Pecatonica Public Library. All non-perishable items are greatly appreciated. Fresh produce is also accepted on the day the pantry is open. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
