Illinois Valley Food Pantry: Serving the Illinois Valley since 1982

Welcome to the website of the Illinois Valley Food Pantry, located in La Salle, IL. For more information, click on the links in the navigation bar on the left. 

We have moved!


After 14 years in the same location in LaSalle, the pantry board decided it was time to move to a larger facility.  We moved in January to 122 Wright St., just 2 blocks west where the Educators of Beauty were located.
