Two Rivers Church is putting up a Little Free Pantry. This pantry will be along 19th Street near the ramp entrance to the church. It will be a place where people can pick up something that they need or drop off donations. The items of the pantry can be suited to fit the season. This is particularly important to remember given the extreme heat and cold that can occur in the area. Suggested and Prohibited donations are listed below.
Our pantry was built and donated by the Muir family of Rock Island. Tim Muir, who built this pantry, also built a similar pantry for Saint John’s Lutheran Church in Rock Island. The Two Rivers Little Free Pantry is the second known LFP in Rock Island, and is a small part of a growing national movement to combat food scarcity on a local and grassroots level.

For a limited time, customers that visit Cool Beanz Coffee House in Rock Island, can get a 15% discount if they make a donation to the Little Free Pantry. This is part of an ongoing partnership between Cool Beanz and Two Rivers Church.
