Nonperishable donations may be dropped off curbside Mondays 2:00-3:00pm, or in the bins at the front of Roche Bros. and Whole Foods in Wellesley. Donations of fresh produce may be brought inside to the kitchen at the bottom of the stairs on Tuesdays 9:00-1:00. (If the outside door is locked, and it probably will be, just call one of the phone numbers on the sign to gain admittance.). Thank you!
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.
