Connect Center

Connect Center's food pantry is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am-2pm with the help of our volunteer, Larry. No appointment is needed but you can contact us ahead of time. The pantry provides 3 days worth of non-perishable food items: occasionally, frozen meat is offered if available. The BackPack Program hosted regionally through the Regional Foodbank and run locally by the Connect Center is designed to meet the needs of food-insecure children on weekends when school meals aren’t available. The BackPack program provides bags filled with food that ranges from snacks, protein filled meals, healthy fresh vegetables and fruit, and often frozen meat. Bags are packed each week by Connect Center staff and volunteers. On Friday afternoons, bags are then either discreetly distributed by school staff to participating students or delivered to their homes depending on parent preference.

ProducePedia

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!

State Cooperative Extension Web Sites

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.
