The Family Life Center is a 501C(3) non-profit organization that assist under-resourced families with rent, utilities, food, short-term prescriptions, budgeting and other services. Our motto is to give a hand-up not a hand-out. We work with the families to try and prevent homelessness and to eradicate hunger.
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.
