We serve about 150 families per week from over 12 surrounding cities. Once a month we do a diaper distribution and senior care kits.
We make over 200 kid goodie bags every week with granola bars, fruit snacks, fruit cups, etc.
We provide fresh produce, non-perishables, frozen meat, milk, eggs, and bread to our families in a drive thru system.
Food donations can be dropped off at the Ministry Center during the week or on Saturdays at the Christian Service room.
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.
