We are a monthly food bank (4th Saturday of the month), we give out anywhere from 40 to 100 boxes of food to local families every month. We mainly buy the food we give out and get monthly donations from Salvation Army too. We gladly accept food donations from anyone and what food we do get that we were not able to give out we pass on to other organizations locally that have food pantries or feed the homeless.
Please call Hope Church office Tuesday - Friday 9am - 2pm to arrange for food donation drop off.
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.
