Christian Action is a food and clothing pantry and it's here to serve registered parishioners and people in our community. Friends in need may call on Mondays or Wednesdays 9:30-11:30 am for food assistance. They are eligible for food assistance once a month. We serve 50-70 families a month. We provide milk, frozen chicken, hamburger meat, bread, toiletries, cleaning products, and fresh produce. We are not part of the local food bank. We rely on donations from the parishioners or the community. We do not accept expired items or glass containers.
No walk-ins. You will be eligible for food assistance once a month
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.
