Contact 507 793-2235 for additional information. We are a small community of 600 HL and 300 OK, but have about 50% proverty level. Our food shelf serves around 12-15 guests (families and senior citizens) per month, a total of around 75-80 people. The community does several food drives, as does our school, but it is only enough for about two-three months per year. We can use donations of food/supplies all year around, but especially during the winter months. We always need: toilet paper, paper towels, deorderant, soaps, shampoos/conditioners, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc. We encourage our guest to keep healthy through good personal hygiene in addition to nutritius foods. We can always use any kind of can goods/staple products. We serve a large amount of spanish culture guests, so foods along that line are always in high demand and very expensive at our local grocery stores. Ideas: Shelf Milks (all kinds), Hot/Cold Cereal, Sugar, Flour, Masa Flour, Tomatoes and tomato products, soups, crackers, noodles and pasta of any kind, spaghetti sauces, Salsa's, Tortilla shells, taco shells, refried beans, dried beans (exp. pinto), pork N beans, canned meats, hamburger helpers, tuna or chicken helpers. We have a large freezer and full size refridgerator, so can store things easily. Any donations are much appreciated and needed. Thank You!

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.
