America's Solution to Food Waste and Hunger

All that we do and believe in is to solve hunger and malnutrition by eliminating the root cause: the waste of fresh food.

We do this by way of an elegant yet simple solution – combining the growers passion to not waste food and our technology, to enable billions of pounds of excess food to reach 1 out of every 4 food pantries nourishing millions of families nationwide.

Our solution is to educate and then enable local gardeners to donate that food.

Your generous contribution helps more fresh food get to more hungry families. For Good.

Two Problems

1. Food wasted because gardeners harvest more than they can use. It could feed 28 million people.
2. Food pantries nationwide desperately need that fresh food.  They feed 50 million people.

One Solution

AmpleHarvest.org helps 42 million home and community gardeners end food waste and hunger by educating and enabling them to donate their excess garden produce to one of 8,060 nearby food pantries across America.

What We Do

We enable you to eliminate food waste, hunger and malnutrition in your own community.

When you donate garden produce that you can’t use, preserve or share with friends, you are ending the waste of healthy fresh food – the very food that is so desperately needed by food pantries nourishing hungry families in your community.

The days of “Jars, cans, boxes – no fresh food” are over.
