Community Interfaith Food Pantry
Belleville, IL 62220
Details: We are here to eliminate hunger in our community. Ten local churches decided their resources were better used and more effective if they cooperated to improve life in our neighborhoods. The Community Interfaith Food Pantry provides food to families throughout the Bellleville and Swansea comunities who are experiencing difficulty in meeting the demands of daily living. The churches began networking and the pantry became a reality when our first home at 205 W. B St. was donated. Volunteers refurbished the house and we opened on Aug. 1, 2007. Our second home at 1218 W. Main St. in Belleville opened Oct. 20, 2014. The Community Interfaith Food Pantry is a nonprofit charitable organization governed by a board whose members are selected by the participating churches: St. Matthew United Methodist, Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic, Signal Hill Lutheran, St. Luke Catholic, St. Teresa Catholic, Christ United Church of Christ, St. Paul United Church of Christ, Trinity United Church of Christ, westview Baptist and First United Presbyterian. Additional support comes from organizations, local businesses and you. Our mission: To eliminate hunger within the community and to make a commitment to consider the total spiritual, emotional and physical needs of individuals and to identify available resources to assist them.
