Empty Bowls 2021

This year instead of buying a ticket so you can eat soup, we are asking you buy a bowl of soup for someone in need, or make a donation.


Sponsor a hot meal for a family in need!

Our Services

Soup Kitchen

Location: 224 South 8TH Street
Hours: M-F 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: Monday 10:30 am-12:30pm, Sunday 2pm-4pm

Due to covid precautions, we are distributing pre-packaged bags only.

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

We’re 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.

Moonlight Ride for Hunger

The Moonlight Ride for Hunger is a family-friendly, community event that benefits the Horizons Soup Kitchen & Food Pantry. The routes take you through some of Quincy’s finest trails, and if you’re in the 14 mile ride, you get to go across the bridge!

There are two different lengths for this year’s ride. There is a 10 mile ride that starts at 6:30 PM and costs $25. The second ride is a 14 mile ride that starts at 6 PM and costs $35.

This event is presented by WGCA 88.5 FM THE MIX, Rethink Media Group, Red Cactus, Madison & Davis Bicycles and is sponsored by Blessing Health System.
