We're a food pantry, and soup kitchen looking to serve the community fresh and healthy foods. We serve families of all ages, at this time, mostly seniors which some are on restricted diets. We try to give other items as well like... household cleanser, laundry soap, toiletries, and pet food. So all is needed and appreciated to help lighten the burden that our community is struggling with.
We request all donations to be delivered on Mondays 9:30 am - 11:30 am
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.
