Hoppee stands for Happy On Purpose People Empowering Everyone.
Hoppee is a newly formed non profit engaging in the community and empowering others to do the same.
We are inspired by the most important people we serve, our kids in the community. We believe that everyone has the ability to succeed.
(“we LOVE healthy fresh food,” “we appreciate kosher/halal/vegetarian/ etc. donation too”, “toiletries are needed too," etc.). Thank you!
Healthy food should be a priority in our low income neighborhoods and not a privilege.
We can arrange local pick up. No amount is too little. Every bit helps! Thank you in advance.
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.
