Community Action Services and Food Bank Orem Senior Friendship Center Food Pantry
The Food Pantry is open to the public and the seniors at the center to use should they require the help. Despite the small space we serve over 30 households a week, making it hard to keep fresh food in stock.
Please Call if we are closed or come during business hours.
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.
