The Salvation Army is an international organization that was founded in 1865 but locally we have served Humboldt County since 1888 - that is almost 130 years of history in this community. We care about people and do what we can to meet the needs we are presented with, We have a food pantry as well as prepare hot meals for seniors at Silvercrest Senior Residence as well as during our other programming times for children and adults because we know that when people are hungry they cannot truly focus on what really matters in the moment.
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.
