The Taylorville Food Pantry continues to serve the growing needs of the community as figures show an increase in households served of 53% in 2023. Bringing the total number of monthly individuals served to 1,235.

The needs of the Taylorville Food Pantry range from donations of food to volunteer work. Amy Hagen, Co-Coordinator, gives a breakdown of the food pantries' staggering numbers.


Brooke Dunn, Public Relations Specialist with the Central Illinois Food Bank says this uptick has been seen nationwide but rural communities are seeing even greater activity in their pantries.
