We give out food to 300 families on the 4th Wed. of each month, but we always have families contacting us throughout the month for extra help. So any donation at any time would be greatly appreciated. We are in great need of food, our numbers keep growing,but our funds do not. We are all volunteers and keep this program going by having yard and bake sales through out the year, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
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.
