The Hospitality House is a shelter, food kitchen, and food pantry. We serve and accept all individuals and families of all genders, races, backgrounds, and ethnicities. We have dry pantry storage, refrigerators, and freezers that allow us to store a variety of foods. We love fresh foods and are always in need of canned goods and shelf-stable items. The pantry works hard to provide food options for all needs and dietary preferences including gluten-free options, vegan/vegetarian options, and culturally diverse and ethnic foods.
The pantry is open everyday from 12-4. It is located on the left side of our building. If you can not deliver during these hours, call the front desk and they can assist you with getting the donations.
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.
