…One Garden at a Time
AmpleHarvest.org Eliminates Food Waste and Therefore Hunger In Your Community
What if you suddenly discovered that there was enough locally grown excess garden produce nationwide to help nourish 28 million people? AmpleHarvest.org was created to put an end to that.
AmpleHarvest.org diminishes the waste of locally grown fresh food and therefore hunger in America by enabling America’s 42 million home/community gardeners to share their excess garden produce with 8,578 neighborhood food pantries across America.
- If your Synagogue or community has a food pantry, please urge it to register today! It’s free.
- Click here to download a Synagogue Flier for your synagogue newsletter or bulletin board or a study guide for your congregation or Hebrew School.
- At your next wedding, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, briss, simchat bat, confirmation, formal dinner, oneg or other special event, use whole fruit instead of flowers for the centerpieces. Then find a local food pantry here and donate the remaining whole fruit.
- If you are growing more food than you can use, AmpleHarvest.org can help you find a local food pantry eager to accept it. Join the millions of growers across the country using AmpleHarvest.org to share their bounty with their neighbors in need by clicking here.
Note: If your Hebrew School is studying tzadakah, tikkun-olam or agriculture in Jewish traditions, or if your synagogue is sponsoring a program along these themes, you may want to incorporate the AmpleHarvest.org study guide.
