Our Church is also the home of the Coal Valley Food Pantry. The Food Pantry’s goal is to serve the community of Coal Valley by providing food to those families who may be living without enough.
The Food Pantry is located at First Presbyterian Church, 2431 1st Street in Coal Valley. The Food Pantry is a joint effort by the New Hope Baptist Church, the St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church, the Trinity Lutheran Church, and the First Presbyterian Church.
The hours are Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m to noon. You can contact the Food Pantry with any questions you might have by calling (309) 799-3511. If you are low on food and would like to visit the Food Pantry, you need only to drop by during the open hours and bring with you a picture ID, and a piece of correspondence such as a water bill or an energy bill that confirms that you live in or near Coal Valley. Due to Covid 19, we ask that you call the church when you arrive. Volunteers will take your information, provide you some food options and bring the items outside for you to load into your vehicle.
