We love connecting seniors and local families to healthy fresh food options. We also accept non perishable food donations and personal hygiene items throughout the year. We operate within the East Longmeadow Senior Center, as well as our mobile delivery van, serving those in need in our community.
Please use the main entrance by the front office. We are also happy to come pick up your donation if you'd like to call and arrange that.
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.
