We are open the second and fouth Tueday of the month and serve around 120 households every time we are open. Fresh produce would be so helpful! Thank you for this program. We are also on facebook under "GBC Food Pantry" The facebook lists our current needs. We always need rice, peanut butter, cereal canned meat, pasta, pasta sauce
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.
