Every harvest makes a difference!
Today, many of America’s businesses closing shop, more people will be 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.
Gardeners can help!
Growing food for yourself is good for your morale and physical wellbeing. Plus 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!
