From the Listing

Channel One is no longer accepting donated non-perishable food items from the general public. However, we are accepting fresh produce! If you are a food manufacturer, restaurant, grower / gardener / farmer, grocery store, or other organization looking to donate food or participate in food rescue, please contact Dylan at [email protected]. Please only consider a donation if the quantity is considerable in an effort to be mindful of staff time. Produce can be donated at the garage door closest to our food shelf entrance. Please ring the doorbell for assistance.


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.
