About half of our recipients are UN refugees and asylum seekers, who help us volunteer to glean and collect food. The other half of our food reaches various populations through our distribution partners. These include families, low-income, elderly, disabled, homeless, Native American tribes, rural folks, and other food-insecure populations.
Open Monday-Friday 9-4. Please call 520-440-0100 before dropping off. Located at the NE corner of the campus of St. Mark's Presbyterian Church. Door is green.
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.
