Churches United hunger ministry has 24 Food Pantries responding to over 118,000 needs for meals annually throughout Rock Island and Scott Counties. Over 100 churches and other organizations contribute money or food and scores of volunteers to operate them.


HOW CAN YOU GET HELP?
The food pantries are located in neighborhoods and a person/family in need can visit the food pantry that serves their location and receive 3-5 days of emergency food for free. The Food Pantry you visit will ask you for identification (drivers license or state ID) and documentation showing your residence address (utility bill, rent receipt, etc. that's come through the mail) with a date within the last 30 days.

Call Churches United offices (563.332.5002) to find the food pantry that serves your neighborhood.



CAN SOMEONE GO BACK FOR MORE?
The Food Pantries operated by Churches United will provide food for you (if you live in their geographical area) on your first visit whether or not you have a referral form. If you have a need for emergency food more than once within a 30 day period you will need a referral from your caseworker. This will allow you to work with someone that can help you solve the challenge of providing yourself with proper food and nutrition.

If you do not have a caseworker at a Quad Cities helping agency:
Illinois Residents call:
Project NOW 309/793-6388
Department of Human Services 309/794-9530

Iowa Residents call:
Iowa East Central T.R.A.I.N. 563/324-3236
Department of Human Services 563/326-8680

Churches United can not serve as your caseworker or provide you with a referral form.
