In 1986, a group of First Community Church members gathered to develop a congregation-wide mission project to put their faith into action. As a result, Project Adelphos was established connecting volunteers with needs in the community.
The name was changed to Heart to Heart to better reflect the goal of uniting individuals one-on-one. Through the commitment and passion of FCC members, volunteers, and the local community, Heart to Heart has grown from a congregational mission to a valuable community resource.
The mission of Heart to Heart is to respond to Godâ€™s commandment to love one another.
The vision of Heart to Heart is to model Godâ€™s love by:
Cultivating a loving community
Honoring individual gifts
Feeding bodies and souls
â€¦and seeing everyone as a child of God
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.
