Your Neighbor's House is a nonprofit food pantry serving west Grayson County. Our pantry serves 250 families on a monthly basis; and has served over 850 families in the past 3 years. Many local residents and farmers contribute fresh produce & eggs, canned goods and other groceries for nutritional meal distribution to our neighbors in need.
We ask that donors call the pantry to inquire about hours of operation, where to drop off their donations and what food items the pantry needs.
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.
