Pantry Operations

Helping the Community Every Month & Holidays

State Farm Peru - Jessica Strauch - Feed Our Children challenge

Volunteers are the main-stay of the pantry operation with over 600 hours of work contributed each month. Volunteers unload cars, sort and shelve food, prepare food orders, help clients carry food to cars and deliver food to shut-ins.

The pantry is governed by an elected Volunteer Board and a coordinator. The day-to-day operation is handled by an Executive Director hired by the Board.

Furthermore, we extend our services to the handicapped and the elderly, delivering food directly to their doorsteps. At Illinois Valley Food Pantry, we believe in making a tangible impact, one meal at a time.
