We are a weekly pantry in The Bronx that distributes food, clothing and anything else we can to those in need. We love giving our guest fresh produce & they love to receive it. We have a 20ft refrigerated container which enables us to receive items that need to be kept cold. The majority of our guests are mothers with small children and seniors. We used to distribute hot meals before and during the pandemic but our kitchen is under repairs at the moment.
Please call 917-825-4573 or 917-453-4480 for delivery, questions or pick up. We do have a truck entrance into our parking lot (no navigating of parked cars) Picture is the parking lot where we hold the pantry & of the container)
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.
