Our food pantry serves over 50 families a month and is growing. We have a mix of senior citizens and families that we serve. We’re able to take donations of fresh, frozen, and shelf stable foods. We also give out hygiene items, pet food, and birthday party boxes.
Our food pantry is open the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month. Please call us to schedule a time to drop off your donation.
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.
