We also have a clothing and kitchen supplies closet, pass out personal care products and give clients who have the space to garden seeds and plants in the spring. This year we are starting a chicken project to increase clients food security. Help with any of these areas and time volunteered in our gardens or at the pantry distribution is also 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!
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.
