We have started a program at Sunrise Elementary called "Sacks of Sunshine". We send home a special sack with food items for families in need. The families can sign up at any time and also come in on Fridays to take whatever they need. It would be wonderful to provide families with fresh produce, milk, or bread for the weekend. We also need spices, salad dressings, and recipe ideas for all our canned veggies!

Location & Open Times
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
We hold canned food drives throughout the year. We always accept donations who are willing. The food pantry is open every Friday 3-4 PM.
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.
