Open Doors is a housing and homeless service organization with a food program that includes a grocery pantry and served meals.
The pantry at Open Doors provides groceries to help people make ends meet. The kitchen at Open Doors also serves meals every day to anyone in need. Between the kitchen and the pantry, we provide approximately 40,000 meals per month to individuals and families in our community.
Entrance is on Merritt Place side of Open Doors' Smilow Life Center, 55 Chestnut Street
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.
