North Mason Food Bank, with dignity and respect, builds community, shares abundance, and nourishes lives. We provide food and basic hygiene to anyone who shows up at our store and states a need. Established in 1982 the North Mason Food Bank strives to be an important part of our community. We serve between 100 and 150 families each week. We love healthy fresh food and are always in need of basic hygiene products.
Please see our website for donation and service hours, current needs, etc. www.northmasonfoodbank.org
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.
