We are a food and clothing pantry serving the Lakota School District which is most of West Chester and Liberty Townships. We provide a large supply of food that lasts a family 2-3 weeks. We provide fresh produce to families monthly. We serve a large Hispanic population. We serve about 100 families each month.
The director is at the pantry most days from 11-7 on Mondays, and 9-4 on other days. Donations on other days is ok. Please call before you come to ensure the director will be in the office when you arrive.
There is often someone in the pantry most days. Please call before you drop off any perishable food. Please drive around the back and knock on back door. Non perishable food can be dropped in our food shed out back.
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.
