We assist the same 100 families, which include seniors, school aged children, and babies biweekly. We are a volunteer only run pantry and we work with Fulfill of Monmouth and Ocean County.
Our email is [email protected]. We are available for any drop offs on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month between 8:30 and 2:00 or 1st and 3rd Tuesday between 10:00 to 12:00. Other arrangements can be made if you email us.
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.
