New food pantry opens doors Saturday

PAXTON — The Hands of Christ Food Pantry (HCFP) is expecting to open its doors on Saturday, Dec. 3, at the Upper Room Bible Church, according to HCFP President Dawn Thomas. The pantry will be open from 9 a.m. to noon that day.

HCFP is still awaiting approval on an application to the Eastern Illinois Food Bank.  Approval would allow HCFP to purchase food at a lower cost. 

Anyone who would like to donate food to the HCFP can drop it off at the Paxton United Methodist Church from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
