Project Hope is a food pantry serving residents of Stillwater County, Montana. We serve a wide range of families, from retired seniors to working parents with children. Each month we distribute boxes of shelf-stable pantry items, along with eggs, cheese, and meat. Donations of canned goods, farm fresh eggs, toiletries, and produce are greatly appreciated and put to good use. We would like to offer more fresh items in our boxes, so if you have an abundant harvest, we would love to share it with our neighbors!
Our hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday 9-3, and Saturday 12-3. Donations can be made during those hours, or you can call to arrange a drop-off at another time.
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.
