Kibbles Korner – Emergency Pet Pantry
The Rock River Valley Pantry partners with Kibbles Korner to distribute emergency pet food. The Kibbles Korner organization advocates, raises funds, orders, and receives dog and cat food for households in need of emergency food for their pets.
This emergency pet pantry program will assist the household up to six times a year. Proof of current rabies vaccination is required and other restrictions may apply. More information is available at time of registration or by calling 815-965-2466.
Distribution of pet food is at our 421 S. Rockton Avenue location on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, from 8:30 am until noon.

The Rock River Valley Pantry is very thankful for its relationship with the local grocers for their participation in the retail food rescue program. Annually they contribute up to one third of all the food that the RRVP distributes. This includes; bread, bakery items, snack food, nonperishable goods, produce, and meat. Hats off to the following for their effort to combat hunger in our community:
- Choices Natural Market
- Ole Salty
- Save A Lot
