The Taylorville Ministerial Association Broke Ground at noon today for the new building that will house both the Taylorville Food Pantry and the Summer Lunch Program. Pastors Steve Robinson and Rodney Blomquist said this new building will be much bigger and will have a central location for all of the programs, which will allow for better convenience and more efficient work to help the community.
The Taylorville Ministerial Association said this project has been in the works for two years and has been able to come together this fast because of the community and volunteers coming together to help. Robinson said they hope this pantry can be up and running within the next 4 months, but that time isn't solidified because of the contractor's work schedule.
The building will be located on the corner of Water St and East Main Cross in Taylorville. Robinson and Blomquist appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
