We are a mobile food pantry serving residents of Hopewell Borough, Pennington Borough and Hopewell Township. We deliver groceries and fresh produce weekly to our neighbors in need. We also host a weekly Grab and Go open to anyone. Currently we serve approximately 125 families each week.
Our collection bin is available 7/24 but we ask that, if possible, fresh produce is donated late Tuesday or early Wednesday morning so that we can get it to our clients in their Wednesday deliveries.
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.
