The ZUMC Food Pantry is open to all people in Zebulon and surrounding communities, without regard race, gender or religion. There is no requirement that people using the ZUMC Food Pantry belong to the Zebulon United Methodist Church.
The ZUMC Food Pantry does however require that you provide some form of identification showing your current North Carolina address. This ID may be a driverÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s license, or a utility bill mailed to your home address, or a referral from social services.
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.
