We are food pantry. We serve all people no matter their religious affiliation or not. We help up to 40 families per month. We do pass out fresh fruits and vegetables. If later in the season, it becomes to expensive or not available we will pass out frozen. With donations we discover easy to make recipes that feed a family of 4. If the family is larger, we will add more ingredients. This helps in food costs but also giving variety and less processed food.
Food donations can be dropped off on Wednesdays from 5 pm to 7 pm. If this time doesn't work email [email protected]
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.
