Love Is What Love Does

Love Is What Love Does mission is to enrich the lives of disadvantaged citizens and improve their environment through programs and activities that encourage personal growth and community involvement. Our organization provide monthly food distributions that serves under-served community members in the Dallas County, Perry, and surrounding communities. Food, meeting the nutritional needs of seniors, is also delivered monthly to seniors and disabled residents with mobility limitations. Nutritous food is prepared for youth participating in youth group meetings and weekly tutoring sessions and activities. In partnership with the Alabama Rural Coalition for Homelessness (ARCH), 211 Information Line, and the Dallas County Family Resource Center we provide food and emergency assistance to homeless /"rapid rehoused" clients referred by our community partners. We aid in the fight against hunger by providing perishable foods, non-perishable foods and fresh produce to poverty-stricken communities throughout the blackbelt of Alabama. We are based in Perry County where over 40% of its population lives below poverty. Clients we serve are families, individuals, seniors, school-aged children, veterans and the homeless. The only grocery store in Uniontown, AL, where our office is located, was shutdown several years ago resulting in the communities lack of access to fresh produce and better food choices. Residents of Uniontown, AL are purchasing their "groceries" out of retail stores that only carry processed foods, increasing the diabetes and hypertension rates in the community. Our current client database exceeds 750 and is rapidly growing. Love Is What Love Does focuses on giving food items that can be used to make meals and that's convenient for a clients current circumstances. We also offer nutrition education in partnership with Alabama Extention to empower communities. We would appreciate anything you are able to donate. We provide food boxes, hot meals, snacks for children, toiletries, household items, etc. to people in need. All contributions are welcome and needed including fresh produce and water.

ProducePedia

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!

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.
