"We feed people because no one deserves to be hungry!"
The KPFBs mission is to provide nourishing food to those in need and to promote public awareness of hunger issues. We are dedicated to addressing hunger on the Kenai Peninsula by distributing food to the hungry directly or through associated nonprofit agencies.
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.
