Los Angeles Catholic Worker
Our soup kitchen, known commonly on the street as "The Hippie Kitchen" is located in the central city ghetto of L.A.s Skid Row. With over ten thousand homeless, poor and marginally employed residents, this area, with its numerous street encampments and rescue missions, has been dubiously nominated "the homeless capital of the nation." It also is the most policed area in the nation. We serve fresh hot meals to area residents 3 times a week. The Hippie Kitchen is run by the Los Angeles Catholic Worker, (Founded in 1970); the LACW is a lay Catholic community of women and men that operates a free soup kitchen, hospitality house for the homeless, hospice care for the dying, a bi-monthly newspaper, and regularly offers prophetic witness in opposition to war-making and systemic injustice. We are funded exclusively by individual private donations. We do not accept nor solicit donations from corporations nor the institutional church.

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!Visit ProducePedia

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.
