Our food pantry has been in existence for about 20 years, as an extension of Saint Vincent DePaul Society. We provide a bag of food, including 10-12 items (canned fruit, cereal, canned vegetables, canned tomato, canned soup, mac-n- cheese, bread, pastries, meat, snacks), and fresh fruit and produce (as available). We also prepare a special food bag at Christmas, along with providing toys for children. We serve food bags each Tuesday and Thursday to anyone who signs up (agency requirement). Each client can receive up to 4 bags per month. Families of six or more qualify for two bags per visit. We serve approximately 600-1000 bags per months. The majority of our food is purchased from Second Harvest Food Bank, We receive food donations from parishioners, and purchase food from local grocery stores. We welcome all types of fresh fruit and vegetable, and $$ donations to help grow our ministry.

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.
