The WHIP Food Pantry would like to give a big, big thank you to all those hard-working community gardners. 


The WHIP Food Pantry would like to give a big, big thank you to all those hard-working community gardners. 

It was wonderful to have all that fresh garden produce delivered to the pantry.

The people who came to WHIP truly enjoyed and looked forward to your wonderful veggies.

We also want to thank Mr. and Mrs. Curley for their generosity of the many cases of canned veggies and fruit that they donate to WHIP several times a year.

We would also like to thank the Washington Community High School leadership  group for their muscle, help and cheerfulness in helping move our Kroger order to the pantry and storing it away for us. It is really appreciated.

However, the number of families in need are increasing  and the cost of keeping our shelves stocked is increasing, and we need your help.

Please remember us in your giving. Donations may be sent to WHIP, c/o Ken Kooch, 934 Birchwood Drive, Washington, IL 61571.

The WHIP Food Pantry is open from 8:30 to 11 a.m. on the first and third Wednesday of each month.

To be eligible, you must have a Washington address and be within the federal income guidelines.

Any questions, call Ken at 444-4692, Jackie at 444-2630  or Fern at 694-1965.

Don’t forget, WHIP stands for  Washington Helps Its People.
