We are a food pantry that not only gives out food, but clothing as well. We help the working poor, those on disability, seniors (over 60), retired veterans, and college students. All must show proof of eligibility and have a photo ID. We also have resume assistance and an Adult Literacy program.
We prefer donors to call before coming to drop off, we can arrange for pick up if we need to.
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.
