We are a food pantry we give out food once a month on the 2nd Saturday, we have been signed up for several years and have never received any
food from Ample harvest. My name is Jeff Moore my cell phone number is 205-479-9535 we serve an average of 100 families a month. We need a walk in refrigerator freezer to be able to serve more fresh fruits and vegetables, also need a box truck to pick up food we have been renting a truck which cost us 200 dollars each month.
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.
