The Simple Way

Four mornings a week, we welcome neighbors to our Food Choice Pantry so they can select groceries. The pantry runs Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9:30 – 12:00 pm, and on Fridays for seniors by appointment. All are welcome to come to our building, although there may be a wait to ensure every person has space and time to choose the foods they want. In lieu of money, every person who comes gets a point allotment they can use to “spend” in the store for their families and themselves. Because food is medicine, we also partner with Esperanza Health Center! We send boxes of food to Esperanza, which they give to patients who can use it the most.

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!

State Cooperative Extension Web Sites

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.
