The UVECFood Pantry located in the Sherman Municipal Building will be open once a month to provide emergency food assistance for individuals and families that need help in meeting the nutritional needs of their household. Application forms are available at the Pantry, UVEC Office, The Stacyville Town Office and The Sherman Town Office. Open: Every 2nd Tuesday of the 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.
