Our Daily Bread is a community kitchen and homelessness care center, serving three nutritious meals per day to anyone in need. We use a lot of fresh food items and only need minimal canned items. We provide a variety of wrap around supportive services to those we serve, including clothing items, hygiene items, emergency shelter, transitional shelter, and case management. We take a wide range of donations, and our most pressing needs are always posted on our website.
Donations are accepted daily from 8am-3pm. The donation area is on the back left corner of our building. Feel free to give us a call to see if we are in need of any items you may have outside of our needs list.
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.
