Harmony CDC Food Pantry provides healthy food choices to families in the Dallas, TX area. Families are served once a month and receive enough food to feed their family size for a week. We definitely love healthy fresh and frozen food and toiletries are needed, too.
Hours of operation: Mondays, 2pm - 6pm, Tuesdays, 4pm - 6:30pm and Thursdays, 10am - 2pm. bring a government issued ID. For donations, come during the hours of operation. If you need to deliver outside of those hours, call 214-467-6774 before you come.
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.
