LHENA (Lowry Hill East Neighborhood Association) Food Share
We provide two bags of free groceries to community members. One bag is fresh produce and the other is staples. You can choose your own groceries when you stop by in person. We are open the 2nd Saturday of the month from 10:30AM - 1:00PM. Come to the parking lot at 2836 Lyndale Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55405. Look for the door with the black awning. In nice weather we will be outside in the lot. To be added to our list, reserve groceries or get more information call or e-mail at 612-208-6044; [email protected]
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.
