Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry


We have been flooded with calls and emails from people asking how they can help the Food Pantry during this time of need. We are continually humbled by how giving the Geneseo community truly is.

We are currently closed to ALL donations due to the governor's shelter-in-place and social distancing order. That said, the best way to help the Food Pantry during these fluid times is with monetary donations. We are still able to purchase food through River Bend Food Bank. You may donate by mailing a check to Geneseo-Atkinson Food Pantry, PO Box 324, Geneseo, IL 61254 or you may donate through PayPal by clicking on the donate button below.

We will remain open on Tuesday mornings from 9-11:30 a.m. for food and Backpack Blessings pick-up (for residents living in 61254 or 61235 zip code area). If you or anyone you know needs assistance feel free to leave a message at 944-3165 or email

We are praying for everyone's health and safety. God bless!
