Our Services

Soup Kitchen

Location: 224 South 8TH Street
Hours: Mon-Fri noon-1pm, Sun 5-6pm

Due to Covid precautions, we will be handing our hot lunches to-go at the north entrance door.

We serve delicious, nutritious meals each weekday to those in need in Quincy, IL.

For many individuals, their meal at Horizons is their only source of fruits and vegetables. Our nutrition goal is to optimize every available resource for fresh fruits and vegetables, and in turn work to prevent obesity and other chronic diseases.

Horizons and our partners are working together to create a healthy, thriving community.

Food Pantry

Location: 224 South 8TH ST
Hours: Sun 2pm-4pm & Mon 10:30 am-12:30pm

To create a safe environment for our guests and volunteers, clients will be physically distanced inside Horizons and will wait outside when our pantry reaches capacity.

We are a client-choice pantry which means that instead of a fixed box of items, the client can select from a wide variety of foods that best fit their needs.

We’ve doubled the size of our pantry which allows us to more variety and accept larger donations.
