Resources for visitors in needs of food assistance for their families
A free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries
The latest from the team at AmpleHarvest.org
Tell the community about your program (are you a food pantry, a soup kitchen, an after school program, etc.), the type of families you serve (younger families, veterans, LGBTQ, etc.), how many families rely on you, or anything else you’d like the community to know. It’s also an opportunity to spell out your exact needs (“we LOVE healthy fresh food,” “we appreciate kosher/halal/vegetarian/etc. donation too”, “toiletries are needed too," etc.).
Please provide any helpful information for donors (e.g., “call before you come,” “use the side door,” “we can arrange for picking up the food from you if you’d like,” etc.).
Uploading an outside photograph of your food pantry is a great way to help gardeners find your building when they come to make a donation. Only jpg, jpeg, and png file formats are allowed. For best performance, upload an image under 2MB.
If possible, please do not use your home phone number. If there is an extension, please note it in the "Additional Instructions" field.
Enter only the handle or profile name and not the social media account's full URL.
We strongly encourage you to invite gardeners to donate their harvest in the hours before your clients come, if at all possible. If your pantry has regular donation times on regular days (e.g., Monday-Friday 9 AM to 5 PM or Sunday from 2 PM to 4 PM), you can enter the exact day/times you’d like the gardeners to come. If you have irregular donation times (e.g., summer/winter hours differ or alternate weeks), enter a freeform description.
Update the time zone your pantry is located in. There may be a default value selected based on your approximate location.
Selecting specific days and times will allow gardeners to filter by date and time. Use this if your pantry has regular donation times on regular days (e.g., Monday-Friday 9 AM to 5 PM).
Your pantry won't appear if a gardener filters by date/time. Use this if your pantry has inconsistent donation hours (e.g., "the 3rd Friday of every month").
Can you accept food at non-scheduled times if the gardener asks for it? Do gardeners need to donate to a different location on different days of the week? Please note any special donation instructions.

AmpleHarvest.org is not a faith-based organization. However, because 70% of food programs are faith-based, we try to keep the social services offices of different religious communities aware as member food pantries join AmpleHarvest.org. Gardeners and other donors never see this information.
How many pounds of locally grown fresh food did your food pantry receive in the past year?
Please enter the communities you serve. Select as many as apply. This information will be used by AmpleHarvest.org internally but will not be visible to the gardeners or the public.
