Golden West College’s Food Pantry, The Stand, is a resource for all currently-enrolled students to shop (at no charge) for grocery items made available to meet their nutritional needs. Each student has access to The Stand once a day everyday of the week. Currently about 400 students are accessing the food pantry with each month the numbers increasing. We appreciate fruits and vegetables. Our students also enjoy snack items in between their classes. Some of the items they enjoy are yogurts, Jello, and rice pudding. They also appreciate drinks to keep them hydrated such as Gatorades and water. We also provide students with 2 toiletries each visit such as shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, and wipes.

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.
