We have open door giveaways 4 days a week so any time someone would like to make a donation would be fine. The giveaway times are as follows: Mondays 6-7pm, Tuesdays 6-7pm, Wednesdays 10am-Noon, Thursdays 10am-Noon, and also on the last Saturday of each month from 10am-Noon. The Outreach Home is located behind the church in the back, left corner of the parking lot and any donations of non-perishables can be dropped off at anytime on the front porch. There are volunteers going in and out of the home all the time to take any donations inside.
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.
