The Food and Clothing Bank is located at St. Paul's United Church of Christ Parish House at 1050 N. State Street. If you are in need of assistance, please call 539-5744, 539-5427 or 539-3306. The Pantry number is 539-5070 on Pantry day.
The Food and Clothing Bank offers three different types of help for needy families living in the Freeburg High School District (Freeburg, Smithton, Floraville, Paderborn, St. Libory and Fayetteville).
They provide clothing free of charge to needy families. Clothing is available by calling one of the contact persons for an appointment or coming to the Food Pantry on the third Thursday. They collect clothing during the entire year. Clothing may be taken to the St. Paul's location at 1050 N. State St.
They provide emergency food orders (for emergency situations only) to needy families. Anyone in need should call one of the contact people at 539-5744, 539-3306 or 539-5427. There are no income guidelines for this help. The decision to help is based on the situation of the family at the time of the request.
They also provide a monthly Food Pantry on the first and second Tuesday of each month from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m., and the third Thursday from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. at St. Paul's United Church of Christ Parish House, at 1050 N. State Street in Freeburg. We do use income guidelines for Pantry (see below).
We hope that you will call the numbers listed above to let one of the contact people know of any family in need.
