We're transforming lives through the power of food. We rescue prepared and perishable food, prepare it into nutritious meals, and distribute those meals to over 100 social services organizations that feed hungry people. We also use rescued food to train unemployed and under-employed adults for meaningful careers in the culinary field.

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.
