Our emergency food pantry is available to anyone regardless of circumstances. If they are hungry, we will feed them. We also do the commodities program to help our economically challenged families. No one food bank can generally provide enough food to sustain families. We mostly see aging and young families.

Location & Open Times
Emergency food pantry 24/7. Our delivery comes on Monday mornings so most people come either Monday or Tuesday. We can even serve hot meals out of our residential kitchen should the need arise. That is when fresh produce means the most to us. We also provide the commodities distribution the second Wednesday of each month.
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.
