We are a local food bank that partners with Hand 2 Hand in Comstock Park High School, as well as serving those with food insecurities in Comstock Park. During the school year we provide week end food bags to the students signed up in the main high school, and have an onsite pantry in the flex academy. On school breaks we provide boxes of food for families as well. Currently we provide shelf stable food, fresh and frozen food, toiletries and clothing.

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.
