We are a small scale food pantry that is serving 20 young families. We do food give-away once a month on the first Tuesday of each month. We appreciate fresh produce, dried food items as well as cash donations.
Donors can call ahead of time to schedule or arrange a drop off or pickup time.
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.
