AMELCA food pantry

We are open on Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. We have little refrigerator and storage room so we can take donations only 2 days in advance. Also, I've listed Harold Kircher as the contact info. He's the president. However, I am Julia Livingston and I will be in charge on email correspondence and entering this website info from our pantry. You can contact both of us to correspond. And, we use in abundance store bought items such as bars of soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet paper, coffee, tea and cereal, so at any time we are willing to take donations of these items.

ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!

State Cooperative Extension Web Sites

The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
