The McKinley Pantry at Garden Hills, in partnership with the Unit Four School District, is part of the Eastern Illinois Foodbank’s School Pantry Program. The McKinley Pantry is available to any family in need, especially those families within the Garden Hills community.
The food pantry is open the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, 4 to 6 PM, during the school year. Funds permitting, the pantry continues through the summer as well.
Led by a group of dedicated volunteers and team leaders, the McKinley Pantry at Garden Hills distributes an assortment of food and pantry items, including fresh and canned fruits and vegetables, prepared meals (e.g., macaroni & cheese), beans, peanut butter, pastas, rice, soups, canned meals (e.g, ravioli), bread, cereals, and snack food items. The McKinley Pantry also offers nonfood items as available, such as baby food, toilet paper, and cleaning products.
We serve an average of 25 families―representing approximately 200 adults and children―each distribution.
Team Leaders: Pastor Keith Harris, Andrea Miller, Julie Harris
