food bank, free food, hunger, food pantries open on Saturday

Our home at

1218 W. Main St., Belleville, Ill. 62220


Patrons were crowded out the front door. Volunteers ran into each other trying to navigate carts through the small rooms. Our limited storage space filled up fast. Our home at 205 W. B St. was a little too cozy. As the community's needs grew, we outgrew our bungalow. Generous donors and our hard-working board and volunteers allowed us on Oct. 20, 2014, to move into a much larger space that is right on West Main Street in Belleville.


We're more visible. We have a larger, more comfortable place for patrons. Our volunteers no longer crash shopping carts into one another. We have lots of storage space, and it is all on one level. We are open to patrons 1-3 p.m. Monday, Thursday and Friday. Tuesday and Saturday hours are 9-11 a.m. Closed holidays.


If you want to help with the expenses of the new building or be part of our expanded mission, call Michael Foppe at 618-593-1669.
