We need food to feed the hungry. Canned goods or items that don't need refrigeration, such as pasta, and breakfast cereal needed.  Personal hygiene items are always welcome.  Do you garden? Bring us your produce. Call us at 618-355-9199 to drop off items or visit during our regular hours from 1-3 p.m. Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays or 9-11 a.m. Tuesdays and Saturdays. Our member faith communities also accept donations. Find them here. Finally, cash is always needed and appreciated. Mail your check to:

Once a week or once a month or once a year, our volunteers come in all sizes, shapes, ages and levels of commitment. Volunteers fill clients' food baskets, restock the pantry and help sort the big food drive collections the second Saturday in May and the third Saturday in November. You can volunteer by calling Mike Foppe at 618-593-1669.


Organize a food drive at your job, club, school or church. Make it a "Christmas in July" drive and help the food pantry when the need is greatest. There are also opportunities to remember us in your estate planning or help our building fund. Call us at 618-355-9199 to discuss the possibilities.
