Durham Center for Senior Life 55+ Food Pantry

The Durham Center for Senior Life's (DCSL) mission is to enrich the lives of Durham Seniors 55+ by promoting healthy, active, and independent lifestyles. We will focus on achieving and maintaining this by the following building blocks:  Physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing  Connection to essential community resources  Authentic socialization and engagement  Culture enrichment and on-going learning Within DCSL we offer a food program known as the DCSL EATS, which stands for Easing Access to Food for Seniors. DCSL EATS serves residents of Durham county aged 55 and older who are without reliable access to a sufficient amount of affordable and nutritious foods. Our main goal is to ease access to food for seniors (EATS)! Our seniors enjoy fresh produce and receiving donations of such will help alleviate the barriers of transportation and finances for them to have access to this.

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.
