FREEPORT, Ill (WIFR) -- A conversation between two Freeport pastors leads to a bigger and brighter space for a Pretzel City Pantry.
Freeport leaders took scissors to ribbon for the expanded Joseph's Pantry. The collaboration between Faith Center Freeport and Crossroads Community Church, leads to a more family friendly pantry inside the Dream Center in the 400 Block of South Adams Street. The new building is now handicapped accessible. And there are no stairs, so staff and clients have easier access to the facility.
Bindy Lillge, the Director of Joseph’s Pantry, spoke with us, "We are still a choice pantry. Which means you choose what you take. And we also have personal shoppers. Every time from the moment you hit the door, there’s one of us always with you."
