Every harvest makes a difference! More and more people are turning to their local food pantry to help put food on the table. This is stressing an already stressed emergency food supply system. AmpleHarvest.org is a non-profit organization that makes it easy for gardeners to donate fresh produce to local food pantries. All donations are tax-deductible and go directly to increasing food security in your community.
Gardeners can help!
As you harvest from your garden, please take any extra to a local food pantry. The harvest that you donate is critically important to local food pantry clients. By making regular donations of fresh produce to your local food pantry, you can improve the health of people in your neighborhood. You can donate food that you grow or food that you buy. It’s easy! All you have to do is find the food pantry nearest you, from our online registry, then deliver your produce to the pantry! If you have been affected by the wildfires, Oregon State University has released information on the safety of garden produce affected by wildfires.
