America's Solution to Food Waste and Hunger
You can end food waste and hunger, malnutrition and childhood obesity while helping the environment.
Help millions of gardeners donate fresh food to nearly 8,000 food pantries feeding millions of hungry families.
In Every State. Every Year.
Together, we can do it!
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.
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 7,904 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.
