Here at Matthew's Hope Ministries, we are a non-profit homeless outreach organization that provides a wide-array of services such as warm meals, on-site and mobile food pantries, showers, medical and mental health services, social service advocacy, transitional housing, life skills and job skills classes, along with two preschool programs that serves children that are structurally challenged.
Utilize rear of building for donations, follow signs.
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.
