Downtown Cooperative Church Ministries

We love healthy fresh food. We are the largest food pantry in the Augusta, GA area. We serve about 5,000 individuals per year. Of those about half are seniors, a quarter children under 18 and the other quarter adults. Because of COVID we have changed our distribution method to a monthly drive-through mobile market. Each family that drives through our parking lot gets approximately 100 pounds of food. The hardest thing for us to find is fresh produce. We operate completely with volunteers, and we occupy a building rent-free thanks to St. John United Methodist Church.

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.
