We are a student ran organization from San Diego Miramar College. We are partnered with Feeding San Diego, Retail Rescue and The Food Bank, yet we are looking for more healthy, fresh foods to be able to provide. We do get fresh foods on the first and third Wednesday's of each month, but we are hoping to get them every week to ensure our students can study without any distractions. Open to all donations!!!
Call and we can make an arrangement for pick up/drop off. Currently, we distribute to students on Wednesday and are closed on Fri, Sat, Sun. Weekdays availability on Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs are from 9 am - 3 pm.
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.
