Newman Shares is a food pantry focused on feeding students who attend the University of Illinois and Parkland College that are dealing with food insecurity. The number of students varies from week to week, but we are always accepting new students and work to provide staples as well as healthy options. Donations of food and money are accepted to provide options for our students in need.

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.
