Good Samaritans of Garland, Inc. "Good Sam"

Good Samaritans, "Good Sam", serves families in Garland, Rowlett and Sachse. Locally-funded and founded, Good Sam provides meat, dry goods and dairy once a month and fresh produce once a week to families and individuals who qualify under North Texas Food Bank guidelines. In emergency situations, exemptions are made and food is provided to ease finances during the emergency. Good Sam desires to help families navigate through the emergency and return to stability and self-sufficiency. With an extensive community partner network, clients are often referred for additional help to the appropriate service provider. Good Sam provides food for over 525 families a month. Due to close proximity to mass transit, Good Sam provides food for a large homeless community. Homeless clients receive a 10-lb. bag of nutritious food and water and access to fruits and vegetables twice a week. Monthly, Good Sam provides 550-600 "10-packs" to an average of 135 homeless clients.

ProducePedia

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!

State Cooperative Extension Web Sites

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.
