Our Services

Soup Kitchen

Location: 224 South 8TH Street
Hours: M-F noon-1pm

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 10am-3pm, Saturday 10am-1pm

Our new food pantry is now open in our new facility at 224 South 8th.

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.

It was a great day. The scouts unloaded more than a total of 1200 pounds of groceries collected at the food drive you all generously contributed at. Thanks!

This years Empty Bowls event was an incredible success!!  Between our ticket sales, raffle baskets, and free-will donations, we made over $13,500 on Sunday!!

We want to thank everyone who made this event possible.  Many of you have contributed year after year, and your support means the world to us.

If you enjoyed your meal, you can thank Niemann Foods Inc and County Market, who donated all of the bread and soup this weekend.  Many of us are getting tired of the cold, so a nice, hot lunch was a welcome respite from the weather.

Our raffle baskets this year were donated by Madison Park Christian Church, River of Life Church, LifePoint Church, Faith Presbyterian Church, Lutheran Church of St. John, Central Baptist Church, Quincy IL, St. Johns Parish, Red Cactus, or Peoples Prosperity Bank.  A large amount of effort was put into these baskets, and it shows.  As usual, the raffle area was one of the busiest places in the building on Sunday!

We would also like to show our appreciation for all of our volunteers.  Bethel Assembly Of God and the youth from Operation Serve were there from the set up to the tear down with plenty of work during the serving time in between, and--once again--the employees of Advanced Dental Care, Quincy loaned us their decorating expertise; this time, we were blessed with some beautiful centerpieces to brighten up the cafeteria and make it our own.

Last, but certainly not least, we want to thank everyone who attended on Sunday.  Your support and encouragement is vital to our continued mission to combat food insecurity in our community.  For everything youve done in the past, everything you are doing today, and everything you will continue to do in the years to come, thank you for allowing us to stand with you!
