The Our Savior Lutheran Food Bank (OSL) has been serving the Lansing community for over 25 years. We provide shelf stable food along with frozen meat and some toiletry products to our clients. Additionally, we have a free room where clients can select clothes, shoes, books and small household items at no cost. We serve anyone that is in need, especially veterans and people living with mental health issues.
We always welcome donations of fresh produce when in season, canned goods (not past their expiration dates), toiletry products, clothing and children's books.

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.
