We are a food pantry serving income eligible WV residents (ID & proof of residency needed) in cooperation with Mountaineer Food Bank, Feeding America, and local contributors. We provide food once a month (usually the 4th Thursday of each month, except for November and December which is the 3rd Thursday) from 3:00 - 4:30 pm. Currently our service is a "drive through" where people receiving food can stay in their cars and we load up the food for them.
Contact us at [email protected] or call Ellen @ 304-876-2212 Ext. 104 to schedule drop off or arrange for pick up. Thank you!
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.
