We are a food pantry, onsite, once per week on Thursdays. We serve about 400 families weekly through our drive through pantry each week. The months of April - November we also go out to various sites in our community each Saturday. This is in addition to the Pantry give away. The food is of course free and serves all people groups, ethnicities, and communities.
Please call before you come, or need to arrange for us to pick up. Our contact is our Logistics Director, Bruce Shuttera, 209-552-5176 or you may call the Office number at 209-529-7346, ext 214.
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.
