We are a food recovery pantry located at Dundee Community Center. We currently recover food 7 days a week and are open to dispense food Tue 4-6pm and Sun 10am-2pm. We also offer a free community dinner the last Wed of the month. We serve those in need in Yamhill County, 75 to 100 families/persons a week (the families are diverse; young, old, homeless, veterans, ect.) We take almost everything, items past being edible by humans are shared with farmers to help feed chickens, ducks, geese, and pigs. The few items animals cannot eat go to compost. Our aim is to have zero waste. We do have facilities to store and refrigerate and/or freeze donated food. Any non food donated items (toys, toiletries, blankets, ect. are given out to those in need.

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.
