Thank you to the people of Minonk

The Minonk Food Pantry Board would like to thank the people of Minonk for their generous donations during the holiday season. We had numerous monetary and food donations from individuals and churches. The Elementary School and Boy Scouts had food drives that brought in bags and bags of canned and boxed food. The Minonk News Dispatch gave us a big check, made possible by your donations. We'd also like to thank the businesses who helped, such as Fieldcrest Dental who gave a generous donation, Corey Grosenbach who is opening the new grocery store donated lots of food. We appreciate all of you so much! Thank you!

Thanks for not picking up my brush

Thanks to the City for driving up and down my alley picking all the brush up but mine.

Baby Formula Available

The Food Pantry has received several containers of Enfamil Infant Formula (9 are regular Infant Formula, 4 Gentlease Formula, 1 Newborn Formula, and 1 Non GMO Formula), 5 boxes of rice cereal, 3 boxes of oatmeal cereal and 1 box of Waffle Wheels. At this time we have no clients with infants, and we really hate to just throw this out. It doesn't expire until 2017 but we don't want it sitting on the shelf. If you can use any of this, please call 309-432-2944 or email
