Our Food Pantry is open on Monday 2-5 and Thursday 5-7 and residents of DeKalb County Indiana may visit our pantry twice a month. We also provide government commodities every Thursday from 10-noon.
We try to provide healthy foods, and meet special dietary needs and other household essentials when available. During the summer our garden provides fresh fruits and vegetables.
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.
