It is my organization's goal to feed those in low-income areas and provide them with fresh food when possible. As part of our mission, we provide food to people living in areas considered to be food deserts, often in areas where there is no reliable transportation or no transportation at all. Senior citizens, struggling families, and the homeless community are among our primary targets. I also work with a social worker who oversees a mentorship program for at-risk youth in high school and college. More than a hundred or more families rely on my organization for food.
Please call us with the time and date that you will arrive.
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.
