Cultivate Food Rescue

We rescue food from food businesses from the farm to retail across the food supply chain. We also accept donations from home gardens. We serve 1,200 students in a frozen meal backpack program that provides kids primarily in grades K-2. We provide each child 6 meals every weekend. We never use canned veggies and often we don't rescue enough fresh veggies for our frozen meals. We also serve 115 local pantries, soup kitchens and social service agencies with the food that is donated to us. We have the ability to distribute quite a bit food in know time at all. The agencies we support can place online orders for the food we have at no cost.

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.
