We are a food pantry in St. Louis County that serves anyone that needs food. We are open Monday-Friday and distribute food between 9am and 2pm. We strive to give our families 10 days of food including as much produce and fresh food as we can.
Donations can be take between 7am and 4:30pm Monday-Friday. Donations should be brought to the garage doors on the west side of the building. Please ring the bell for assistance. Ideally donations will be delivered between 7 and 8:30am or 2:30 and 4:30pm but we will take them during the day as well.
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.
