No boundaries, no ID or proofs req'd, open to all. Limit one visit every 4 weeks.
WE NEED: Fruits and vegetables, canned or fresh; baking supplies, hygiene supplies for men, women and children, diapers, toilet paper, healthy snacks, bread, condiments, eggs and milk, breakfast cereals, peanut butter and jelly, canned soup, pastas and sauce, tuna, canned chicken, etc. We also need low-sodium and gluten-free products!
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.
