What Makes Supporting AmpleHarvest.org Unique
You can donate food or money to a food bank or food drive for an “eat once” contribution of a can or box food.
Or you can contribute to AmpleHarvest.org to create a sustainable and recurring opportunity for local growers to share their harvest with neighborhood food pantries for many years to come…. greatly magnifying the impact of your donation.
While our message has been that gardeners can help their neighbors in need by reaching into their backyard, you can help AmpleHarvest.org by reaching into your back pocket.
Personal donations, corporate grants, trusts and endowments all enable AmpleHarvest.org to diminish hunger, improve nutrition and help the environment by moving information instead of food around America.
Any contribution, large or small, one time or recurring will help AmpleHarvest.org enable local growers to diminish hunger across America.
In addition to supporting AmpleHarvest.org, you can help diminish hunger in your community by finding a local food pantry and giving this flier to them. Any food pantry not listed on AmpleHarvest.org represents local food lost to the community.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign encouraged everyone to eat healthy food. Author Michael Pollan’s Food Rules encourages people to eat “mostly plants”. TV personality Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution urges people to “eat well”. For one out of six Americans however, healthy eating is beyond their means.
Your contribution however, enables fresh garden produce to get to millions of people in communities across America
Today, AmpleHarvest.org enables 8,380 food pantries (and growing) across all 50 states to become “visible” to local gardeners eager to share their excess garden bounty with the needy in their community.
Your contribution to AmpleHarvest.org helps many more gardeners donate food to more food pantries in thousands of communities across the United States. Growers nationwide are taking the AmpleHarvest.org “no food left behind” pledge. Help make sure there is a place for them to take that extra food to.
