We are a food pantry affiliated with the Blue Valley School District in Overland Park, Kansas. Our pantry is open to all community members who face food insecurity. The Blue Valley Community Pantry serves an additional purpose as a vocational training site for students with disabilities who are receiving special education services within our school district. Our special education students staff the pantry, learning important work skills such as communication skills, stocking shelves, sacking groceries, etc.

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.
