Food & Non-Food Items
Our food pantry does accept food items. However, due to safety regulations, the items must be non-perishable, not be expired, and no visible damages can be seen on the packaging. Donations can be dropped off inside Normal First United Methodist Church between 9 am and 4 pm Monday – Friday by the front office.
There is also a large need for non-food items such as toilet paper, feminine hygiene products, laundry detergent, dish soap, and deodorant. Non-food items will all be accepted as long as they are in their unopened and original packaging. We will also accept gently used or new cooking utensils, cookbooks, to distribute to students in need.
