MF CDC Food Pantry is a volunteer-based organization. The Pantry is governed by a Board of Directors, a Client Services Coordinator, and an Operations Manager. A volunteer staff of nearly 40 individuals oversees the day-to-day operations of the Pantry. Located in the Austin community on the West side of Chicago. Austin is considered by many to be a food desert, an area lacking affordable access to nutritious food, leaving residents to travel miles to grocery stores or otherwise rely on convenience stores, processed meals, and fast food. The families we serve are seniors, migrants, youth, single moms and dads, younger families, veterans, LGBTQ, etc., we serve over 200 plus families a week. “We LOVE and need healthy fresh food,” “We appreciate kosher/halal/vegetarian/etc. donation too”, “We are in are in dire need of Baby milk, diapers, wipes, and toiletries which is much needed too," etc.).

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.
