Big Red Pantry

The Big Red Pantry is located at the First Congregational Church of Fresno (The Big Red Church). We serve about 200 families a month through a once a month Saturday distribution and a weekly in-house pantry (located within the office of the church). We serve those in need to matter their circumstance. We try to provide healthy choices and are often fortunate to receive produce but we are always looking to have a more sustainable supply of veggies and fruit. We also provide toiletries such as soap, shampoo/conditioner, lotion, razors, toilet paper and sanitary and incontinent products. And for the unhoused, we try to have easy open "flip top" items. No one is turned away, the unhoused, LGBTQ+, families, vets, are all welcome.

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.
