Our ministry is a food pantry that has been in operation since 2018, we made it through the pandemic and has been feeding families every week for the pas 4 years. Each week we serve approximately 115 families, fresh fruits and vegetable, meat, can goods and sometime milk and eggs. We are located in the Miami area and a lot of families depend on us. We distribute every Wednesday and every other Friday (next distribution 8/26/2022)
You can call before you come and we can also arrange for picking up the food, within a 20 mile radius.
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.
