Holiday Food Basket Program

The Holiday Food Basket program is designed to help those in need during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Every year during the holiday season, Central Illinois Services coordinates with Menard Caring, Inc., to provide around 100 families with food baskets in the PORTA School District. Athens and Greenview Pantries provide for families in their respective areas.

The program operates on a first come first serve basis. We cannot guarantee your household will receive a food basket but will do our best to accommodate as many families as possible.

Applications must be completed and turned in by October 31, 2017 @ 101 W. Sheridan Ave., Petersburg, IL 62675
