Local Boy Scout Troops Makes Large Donation to Taylorville Food Pantry

The Taylorville Food Pantry was treated to substantial local giving as two Taylorville Boy Scout Troops collected nearly 2000 pounds of food items to donate to the pantry. Troops 132 and 4495 were successful in their efforts to secure not only non-perishable food items but also a wide range of foods that bring variety to the patrons of the Taylorville Food Pantry.

Pam Moses, Co-Coordinator for the Taylorville Food Pantry says this initiative with the Boy Scouts has only improved each year.


Amy Hagen, a Co-Coordinator says that with large donations like these, the food pantry workers and shoppers often do not know what to expect.


Upon inquiring to professionals about the food groups and if Taylorville Food Pantry patrons were getting all of their essential nutrients, the coordinators found that fresh produce was the only factor that was not focused on. In 2023 the Taylorville Food Pantry began providing fresh fruits and vegetables, expanding the options for shoppers as a result.


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.

Amy Hagen and Pam Moses appeared as guests on the WTIM Morning Show.
