AmpleHarvest.org is a unique nationwide resource that is eliminating the waste of food. By doing this, hunger and malnutrition is reduced and the environment is improved. We do this by using the internet to enable 61 million Americans who grow food to easily donate their excess harvest. They bring their fresh food to one of 8,731 registered local food pantries nationwide. These food pantries help nourish the one out of six Americans (including a quarter of all kids under six ).
AmpleHarvest.org envisions an America where millions of gardeners eliminate wasted food, malnutrition and hunger in their own community.
AmpleHarvest.org works to diminish the waste of food and therefore hunger in America by using education and technology to enable home and community gardeners to share their excess harvests with a nearby food pantry instead of letting it go to waste.
Our “No Food Left Behind” goal is to have a healthier and by extension, wealthier America.
The only way to end hunger is to take action.
