We are one of the many organizations that work with the SeminoleCounty School Board to provide food pantries located in a public school. We are Asbury United Methodist Church in Maitland Florida. We are one of the three churches that work to keep this food pantry filled. We feed children at Rock Lake Middle School, Lyman High School, Milwee Middle School, Lake Orienta Elementary School and Altamonte Elementary School.
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.
