The St. Vincent Healthy Food Center provides individuals who are food insecure within Allegheny Health Network with healthy food each month. The Healthy Food Center offers a variety of low sodium canned vegetables, no sugar added canned fruit, low fat dairy, whole grains, lean protein, frozen fruits and vegetables, salt free spices, and cooking utensils. The Healthy Food Center is run by a Registered Dietitian which allows participants to receive free nutrition counseling to help manage chronic diseases. We serve a large variety of people. Most participants have a chronic health condition like diabetes, heart disease, and kidney disease. Having healthy food available to them helps to ensure they are getting the nutrients they need in times when they may not have enough money to buy food. At the Healthy Food Center we truly believe that food is medicine and that everyone should have an equal access to healthy food. Any donation is greatly appreciated!

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.
