Welcome to Food Pantry Friday – Every day established food pantries and hunger-relief agencies in cities and towns across the U.S. register for free on www.AmpleHarvest.org.

There’s strength in numbers. When your register your food pantry, food closet, food cupboard or food shelf on www.AmpleHarvest.org, you’ll be joining an online community of nearly 7,000 other food pantries already up on our site!
Here’s what a few pantries had to say about being registered on AmpleHarvest.org…
“This summer we had three or four families bring us produce. Perhaps the most beautiful example was a mom and her three children who brought us a handful of zucchini. It really wasn’t about how much they had to give but that they said, “We have enough and wanted to share.”
~The Rev Deacon Carey Chirico, St. George’s Episcopal Church, Fredericksburg, Virginia
“I wanted to let you know that a representative from one of our local farmers/community garden contacted me today desiring to donate excess vegetables to our Fresh Market. He was made aware of us through the AmpleHarvest.org website. I’m very happy that your organization has a presence on the internet, and that you are connecting local farmers and food pantries.”
~Crystal Robinson, Breakthrough Urban Ministries, IL
“AmpleHarvest.org has been a huge benefit to our partner agencies and has really helped getting fresh fruits to those in need.”
~Liz Landa, Feeding America of San Diego, CA
