At the same time, 42 million Americans grow food in their home garden – often more than they can use, preserve or give to friends.
The AmpleHarvest.org Campaign enables growers’ to share their excess garden bounty with a neighborhood food pantry.
By reaching into their backyard instead of their back pocket to help their neighbors in need, a growers freshly harvested food is made available for the first time at a neighborhood food pantry thereby improving the nurtitional quality of the food distributed….without spending a dime.
