We are open 8-4pm Monday to Friday at 2102 Windsor Place to be contacted for information about this program. We do our distribution and delivery of the sacks of groceries twice a month at the Grace Lutheran Church (please do not contact the church as they just provide some storage of food and a place to put the sacks of groceries together). We do this twice a month; e.g. 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the Month between 7am-11am. Please note we only deliver groceries to persons that have applied for this service thru Family Service.
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.
