We have a small garden that does not meet the demand, so thank you for anything fresh that you are able to bring! We also welcome volunteers in our garden and pantry. For our pantry, we need and use all canned, dry and packaged foods, as well as personal hygiene items. Freezer and refrigerator space varies constantly, so please call ahead to make sure we have room. School snacks during the school year are important and not often donated. We also accept school supplies, hats, coats, scarves and gloves that go directly to schools to be given out as needed discreetly. Thank you so much for anything you can do to help!
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.
