Thanks to Feeding America of Eastern Wisconsin the OACP now has its own hydroponic growing machine. Capable of growing up to 600 lbs. of leafy lettuce a year this machine will grow fresh produce for Pantry clients year round! We hope to expand on nutrition education by providing container gardening classes, interactive harvest of fresh produce from the Growing Machine, and so much more! Stop in and check it out today!
Free Nutrition Education Classes are available every Monday from 2-3pm in the Pantry’s main registration area. Classes cover a wide range of topics and a new topic is featured each month. Some past topics include: budgeting for meals, basic nutrition guidelines, portion sizes, and how to make your groceries go further. There is no attendance limit for this class and classes are available to any Pantry customer.
