The Leavenworth Mission Food Pantry is the largest food distribution site in Leavenworth County. We help over 500 families every month. We accept any foods, toiletries especially arm deodarant, razors, toothbrushes.
Foods can be left on our dock if you prefer contactless delivery, or you can let our volunteer cashier know you are donating foods...then place on the dock.
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.
