So Others Might Eat

SOME is a non-profit organization that provides relief services to homeless and low-income families and individuals in the D.C. area. Our goal is to restore hope, dignity, self-respect and independence to our clients through a wide range of services, such as daily meals at our Dining Room and emergency groceries from our food pantry; medical and dental services as well as long-term addiction programs; single occupancy and family housing and employment training. Donated produce and canned goods goes to our food pantry, which our clients utilize on a monthly basis to supplement or fill their own pantries; fresh produce is particularly valuable, as many of the families cannot afford to buy fresh fruits and vegetables.

ProducePedia

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!

State Cooperative Extension Web Sites

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.
