The Salvation Army Family Services is a food pantry. We provide daily homeless food bags to our homeless population 4 days a week. We serve at least 10 to 20+ homeless per day. We also provide Monthly Food Boxes once a month for singles, couples and families that have a residents/ home they live in. we serve an estimate of 200 boxes per month. if available to us we help with anything from toiletries/hygiene to pet food as well. We always LOVE and Aprreciate anything that comes through our doors as long as we can help our community.
Please schedule a time with us for any deliveries before coming to our building so that we can be prepared for any donations.
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.
