Any donation will help make an impact. Hummingbird Pantry has grown to be the largest food distribution site in North Brevard County and the Second Largest Distribution site in Central Florida. Hummingbird services up to 6,000 families with up to 180k pound of food weekly.
Hummingbird posts on their Facebook (Hummingbird Pantry Distribution Time) when Friday distributions will take place each month. Semis and deliveries take place at 7:00 am. Contact information can be found at hummingbirdpantry.org/contact. Gina Stanford will provide images and videos of various distributions
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.
