We are the helping agency for North Ridgeville, Ohio. Since 1989 we have been serving the less fortunate by providing qualifying clients with free food, clothing, and utility assistance. We have over 80 volunteers. Our mission is to help in any way we can with whatever resources are available to us.
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.
