The Bement Food Pantry, started in 2000, is in its 11th year of operation. All of the churches in Bement and Ivesdale collect and give to the Bement Food Pantry. The Pantry has six regular volunteers. The Pantry is housed at the Bement Christian Church located on the corner of S. Piatt and E. Wing. Food donations are gladly accepted and can be dropped off at the Christian Church on Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. If those times do not work but one would like to donate, a phone call can be made to Ann Lust (678-7151), Coordinator of the Bement Food Pantry, and she can meet outside of those hours at the church to collect those donations. Donations are down worse than ever at this time. Those wishing to make monetary donations can mail them to: Bement Food Pantry, PO
Box 197, Bement, Illinois 61813. Please make checks payable to Bement Food Pantry.
