Due to new guidelines from Champaign-Urbana Public Health, our Food Pantry is currently using a drive-thru distribution method.
Grace Lutheran Food Pantry is open every Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
Grace Lutheran Church is located at the corner of Springfield and Prospect Avenue in Champaign. The CU MTD 5 Green Bus runs down Springfield Avenue and has stops near the church. For more information on CU MTD routes, please see the CU MTD webpage (https://www.cumtd.com/).
The GLC Food Pantry has been working to alleviate hunger by providing emergency food for nearly 40 years. Currently we serve an average of 120-150 families each month. The pantry is open on Thursday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been distributing food via a drive-thru system, which has worked very well. We are an agency of the Eastern Illinois Food Bank, which serves 19 counties in eastern Illinois.
Client families may come to our pantry one time per month. Everyone in Champaign County is welcome. We are committed to helping those in need. Other sources of emergency food can be found here.
