Great Falls Rotary Foundation - Military Assistance Pantry
The Great Falls Rotary Foundation - Military Assistance Pantry is a food pantry serving the Veteran and active Military community. The Pantry was officially opened in February of 2018 serving 10 Veterans and their 3 children. The current number of those served is 124 Veterans and families which includes 81 children. One of the key focuses of the Pantry is to provide our Veterans with fresh fruits and vegetables. This can be challenging at times. We provide food along with paper products and personal items. Any donation of any size is greatly appreciated.

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.
