Food Pantry: With assistance from others in our community we sponsor and host the Watseka Area Food Pantry.  The food pantry helps provide food security to many families in our community and Iroquois county.  This is a vital extension of Christ’s love to others.  Your participation is always appreciated.  Answering the phone, stocking shelves, unloading shipments of food are some of the ways you can help support this important ministry.  If you need assistance, would like to volunteer or need more information please call: 815-432-0122.  The food pantry is affiliated with the Eastern Illinois Foodbank and Midwest Foodbank.

If you need help and need to visit our food pantry please call 815-432-0122 between the hours of 9:00 & 11:00 am to make an afternoon appointment on the same day you call. Our food pantry is open Monday through Friday except for holidays.
