Tarpon Springs Shepherd Center, Inc. provides compassion, basic support, and assistance to those in our community who need it most. Through our faith conviction we focus on families, the elderly, the homeless, and others in need. We feed the hungry, clothe the poor, and equip the least among us by providing opportunities and a place for all to give and receive hope.
We accept non perishable food, and non food items for our outreach department.
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.
