The Children's Museum of the East End has been able to facilitate an ongoing food pantry for 70 to 80 families. Food 2 Play aims to ensure that the most vulnerable in our community are provided with enough to eat. Please consider making a donation today. Every gift, no matter the size, allows us to serve families on the East End when they need it most.
Produce is best dropped off the day before our pantry opens. Please contact us for dates and times.
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.
