John Knox Community Food Pantry

We serve a 45-square-mile area in southern Kent County, where 1 in 5 residents and 1 in 4 children live in poverty. 1 in 7 of our residents face hunger. The majority of our pantry users are employed parents living below 200% of Federal Poverty Guidelines. We are also seeing an increase in the # of seniors who are living on a very fixed income. Last year we provided nearly half-a-million meals to 10,000 eligible neighbors. We are always in need of healthy produce for our families and provide education on health and nutrition through our NOW (Nutritional Options for Wellness) program. We also provide Take home raised gardens for several families each season and a Community Garden for our families to learn to grow their own food. For the future, we are trying to provide a healthier option for our folks, however, we often run short of providing healthy fresh produce.

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!

State Cooperative Extension Web Sites

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.
