Caring Heart Teen Pantry

Our pantry is designed for tweens and teenagers 6th grade to 12th grade. They can come in the 1st and 3rd Saturday each month and get personal care items such as soap, shampoo, feminine products, deodorant, etc. They also get to choose their own food and snack items to help combat food insecurity. We also help some of our senior citizens as well with fresh food and produce when it is available and even gave out 9 raised garden beds with all of the dirt, fertilizer and plants so they can grow their own food this summer. Our pantry is to help at risk teens, but it is open to ANY teenager who wants to come and we encourage all teens to come so that no one feels that it is for "poor" kids. We do fun activities with the teens such as cooking, wood working, auto care and they want to learn about gardening. So, I am wanting to get our some of our college extensions involved in some of our activities we have coming up! We have about 120 teens signed up for the pantry and about 30 elderly that we help out. We are working toward raising the funding to get CLEAR DOOR coolers and freezers for the pantry. I feel if we can get them to SEE the healthy items, they will be more likely to pick those items up. We also help out our homeless ministry and domestic violence shelters in our area with hygiene items or fresh foods. We have a few teens who are trying to control their carbs to help reduce their blood sugar (they are prediabetic)

ProducePedia

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.
