Bennys Bodega is set up like a store or "Bodega" to help stomp out the stigma of needing a hand. We provide basic needs items free of charge to the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Population formally known as the working poor, senior citizens and people receiving disability.

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!
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.
