Welcome to New Vision Food Pantry. We are excited about the opportunity to minister to your family! We are open every Monday from 5pm-7pm except holidays. Clients are allowed to visit our pantry 1 time every 30 days. All you need to sign in is a photo I.D. Every week, we serve the best variety of canned goods, fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, and meat, if it is available to us. We cannot deliver boxes of food. Our pantry is handicap accessible. For more information, call the ministry office at (217)423-7333 and ask for Pastor Dick Mogged.
Every week, our food pantry is open (except major U.S. holidays). In order to serve such a large number of clients, we coordinate a huge team of volunteers each week. We are always accepting new volunteers. We have a large variety of opportunities ranging from driving the box truck early in the morning to get the food, to unloading the truck in the early afternoon, to staying after the pantry closes to help clean up. Some jobs are physically demanding, but others are not at all. If you are looking for a way to help the community, we have a place to fit you in through our food pantry ministries. For more information on volunteering to make a difference in our community, contact our outreach director, Dick Mogged, at (217)423-7333. We look forward to serving with you!
Every year, we hold a Christmas giveaway for children. The name of the giveaway is "The Joy of Giving". The purpose of this event is to teach the children the joy of giving and to provide Christmas presents for the entire family. We give out tens of thousands of dollars of brand new merchandise every year. Here is a video from this year's Christmas Giveaway!
