HMFA is a monthly community meal program serving free locally-sourced meals to anyone in the community on the second Friday of every month. We serve about 60 people each month a hot wholesome meal in a welcoming and dignified environment. We use locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible. All meals are prepared the day-of by a professional chef, though prepping occurs the Thursday evening prior. We welcome fresh locally-sourced produce to be either incorporated into the meals or handed out to guests for their own use.

Location & Open Times
Wednesday or Thursday before the second Friday of the month. Please contact Elizabeth at [email protected] for coordination.
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.
