HMHY provides weekly fresh and packaged nutritious groceries via 10 Long Beach locations (6 schools and 4 community locations). Seniors 60 years and over who are unable to access a food pantry may qualify for free groceries home-delivered via our Long Beach Food Pantry Delivery service.
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.
