We serve homebound senior citizens in rural communities. We serve on average 80 seniors per month who have various medical/health problems, lack transportation, and live on a fixed income. Our senior citizens love fresh vegetables; collard greens, tomatoes, corn, peppers. Our seniors are in need of KN95 masks, hand sanitizers, disinfecting sprays/wipes. toilet paper, paper towels, dishwashing liquid, and personal hygiene products.
Please call or email to arrange for donation drop-off.
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.
