AmpleHarvest.org helps millions of backyard gardeners easily find a local food pantry to which they can donate their surplus garden produce. If you have come to this site because you are in need of food assistance for your family, you may use the tool below to look for a local food pantry.
If you are unable to find one in your community, WhyHunger‘s find food map and United Way/211 are available for you. Both are excellent organizations that offer a number of services that will be of assistance to you. If United Way or WhyHunger helps you find a food pantry (or closet or shelf or bank or cupboard), help it get you locally grown fresh garden produce by printing a flier and give it to the pantry manager. Urge them to register their food pantry at this site as soon as possible. Remind them it is free!
WhyHunger believes a world without hunger is possible. They provide critical resources to support grassroots movements and fuel community solutions rooted in social, environmental, racial and economic justice. They are working to end hunger and advance the human right to nutritious food in the U.S. and around the world.
