Over 50 families utilize The Pantry, Elderly, middle aged and younger people. Fresh fruit and vegetables are quick to go. We have trouble keeping tissues, toilet tissue and paper towels available as well as shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent and dish soap. The Pantry families love frozen beef of any kind.
Call (605) 846-7607 or (605) 397-8422 during business hours before you come.
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.
