Taylorville Food Pantry Looking for Volunteers and a Pick-up Truck

The Taylorville Food Pantry is in need of a pick-up truck. On Saturday mornings, one of the operations for the Taylorville Food Pantry volunteers is picking up large quantities of food from area grocery stores. This initiative is called the Food Rescue Program and the donations require ample space to travel from the stores to the food pantry.

Amy Hagen, Coordinator with the Taylorville Food Pantry says the food pick-up job has been completed for the past months by two dedicated and selfless citizens, who had access to a pick-up truck.


Hagen describes volunteering at the food pantry, whether it’s stocking shelves or picking up donations of food, as rewarding. Volunteer numbers have increased slightly over the last month which excites the food pantry coordinators and will result in more families in need being served.



Days of service at the Taylorville Food Pantry are Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., Thursdays from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. The TFP is located at 1429 East Main Cross Street in Taylorville.

To get involved in volunteering or for any questions about the Taylorville Food Pantry, call 217-824-4113.
