We are a food pantry open to all residents of Schoharie County. We have a list of available food choices for our guests, and offer home delivery within our local school district to guest who are not able to get to the church. We are open on Fridays from 9:30am-12 noon and no appointment is necessary. We typically serve around 20 families a week, and guests may access our pantry 2x per calendar month. We offer healthy choices and try to offer fresh fruits and vegetables whenever we are able to get them.
Donations may be brought to the pantry Tues- Friday between 8am -1:30 pm, and Saturday from 9:30-3pm. Please come in through the yellow doors that face Chapel Street.
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.
