Last Thursday I delivered a few mixed bags of kale, lettuce, spinach, chard, mint, and radishes to the local food pantries.
The Bryn Mawr pantry, aka the Ada Mutch Community Resource Center, is located near the hospital and library. They are open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10-12 and 2-4. Here is their facebook link: www.facebook.com/AdaMutchCommunityResourceCenter. This pantry is only for people with personal incomes under $16.5 k
The Ardmore pantry, aka the St Mary’s Episcopal Church, is located at 36 Ardmore Ave also next to the library and about a five minute walk from the garden! The food pantry is located inside the Parish House and operates on Mondays from 9:30-11:30 (I’ll be heading over for a second time right after this post) and Thursdays from 6-8 pm. The only requirement to get food from here is that one must live in Lower Merion County. The pantry used to accept everyone until too many people from Philadelphia came over and the pantry ran out of food rather quickly.
