Agency Spotlight: Taylorville Food Pantry

Staff and volunteers at the Taylorville Food Pantry, which has been in operation since 1984, know the importance of providing healthy food options to our neighbors. Patrons who visit the Taylorville Food Pantry enjoy a wide selection of fresh produce, protein, dairy, and non-perishable items in a grocery store style environment, thanks to the hard work and dedication of nearly 100 volunteers.

From checking in patrons when they enter, to sorting food donations as they come in, to going out and purchasing extra items when they are needed, the volunteers at the Taylorville Food Pantry take great pride in providing a helping hand to those in the community who need it.

“I couldn’t imagine it working without everybody doing their part,” says longtime volunteer Linda Baldock. “In all the time I’ve been here, I haven’t seen a time where we didn’t get help if we needed it. The people are very generous.”
