New Bethlehem Community Center was established in 1912 and continues to serve those in need in our community. We have a community food pantry the third Wednesday of every month as well as a senior citizen food pantry the third Thursday of every month. In addition to our food pantries we serve the seniors healthy meals on every Tuesday and Thursday. As well as host two farmers market style events yearly to provide fresh produce.
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.
