Ordinary People International

Ordinary People International is a 501c3 non-profit organization housed within a community church on the Southside of Chicago. We provide donations to low-income, homeless, and individuals/families that need assistance to make ends meet. An abbreviated list of donations are: household items from Bed, Bath & Beyond, bread/pastries from Panera Bread, boots and shoes from UGG, toys/clothing from Disney/Toys for Tots, sandwiches from Pret A Manger, etc. One of our sponsors (Ultra Foods) and a downtown food pantry supplied us with fresh vegetables and fruits. Both of these wonderful organizations have either gone out of business and will be closing its doors in June. We would love an opportunity to partner with Ample Harvest so that we can continue providing produce to our community. Thank you for reaching out to Ordinary People International and we excitedly look forward to the farmers contacting our non profit organization. Thank you. We are in need of corn, tomatoes, potatoes, string beans, peas, lettuce, cabbage, onions, celery, bell peppers, and sweet potatoes.

ProducePedia

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!

State Cooperative Extension Web Sites

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.
