St. John of God Community Services is a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides multi-dimensional services to individuals with disabilities. We have an on-campus and mobile food pantry where we provide non-perishables, and when available fresh and frozen foods as well as personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies for people in need. We are open to the community Monday through Friday. We accept and are grateful for all donations and partner with other area pantries to make sure no donation goes to waste.
Please call to schedule a pick-up date and use the main entrance of Bldg. A when you arrive.
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.
